You are invited for the above post to join our ENT team. This is a replacement post. The appointee will join the existing 13 consultants. An on call commitment will be required.
We’re one of the largest and busiest teaching Trusts in England. Our three hospitals - the Glenfield, General and the Royal Infirmary – were joined together in 2000. We employ over 10,000 staff to treat a diverse population of nearly one million people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, as well as a further two to three million people from neighbouring counties. We are fully committed to Continuing Medical Education for consultants.
High quality specialist care particularly in cancer, renal and cardiac services has gained us a national and international reputation. We are at the forefront of many research programmes and new surgical procedures, such as keyhole heart valve surgery and our research into diabetes, genetics and cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. We also play a vital role in teaching the next generation of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, by working closely with local universities.
Our location in Leicester offers the opportunity to balance a quality lifestyle with a very rewarding working career. Whilst being within easy road or rail access of London and to the wider Midlands and the North via the M1 and A1, the hospital is within 40 minutes of Nottingham East Midlands Airport. Leicestershire and Rutland offer areas of natural beauty and some excellent schools all within a short distance of the hospital.
