Consultant in Emergency Medicine
UHL is one of the largest teaching hospital trusts in the UK. The Emergency Department (ED) is based at Leicester Royal Infirmary, where we currently see 240,000 patients a year.
The new emergency department was completed in April 2017. The new build incorporates a 32 cubicle majors department, a 12 cubicle Emergency Room, and a separate Children’s ED with 12 bedded Short Stay Paediatric Unit for children who are expected to stay less than 18 hours.
The ED in Leicester has pioneered an annualised consultant rota which is increasingly being adopted in other centres. This offers personal flexibility, within a large, committed team, time for sub-specialty interests in existing Consultants, and support for others.
Despite the clinical work pressures and challenges, our ED is a leading light nationally in Paediatric EM, EM Research, EM education and Geriatric EM, and is actively developing a program in Pre-Hospital EM.
Leicester offers the option of rural or city living, excellent state and private education, easy access to London by train (55min) and East Midlands airport (30min).
