Applications are invited for a whole-time Consultant in Obstetric Anaesthesia.

It is an exciting time to join our welcoming and friendly team of 10 Obstetric Anaesthetic Consultants who are engaged in patient focussed elective and emergency obstetric care, pre-operative, and high-risk assessment clinics at the Leicester General Hospital.

If you are ambitious about what you do and strive to improve patient experience, bring your dedication and determination here, and you will benefit from the support of an experienced and enthusiastic multi-professional team committed to the delivery of brilliant patient care.

Every day at University Hospitals of Leicester we save lives, improve lives and usher in new life. Our Trust Values determine our behaviour and our culture. We are a passionate and creative team and at our best when we work together.

We want to continue to improve everything that we do, so that we can achieve our Vision: Caring at its best for every patient, every time. Our Quality Strategy, “Becoming the Best”, describes how we are doing that in a determined, targeted, and systematic way, with our staff the champions of change and our patients not just beneficiaries, but partners.

As one of the very largest NHS Trusts in the country, our contribution to our communities goes way beyond direct health; we are the largest employer in our region, we educate and train the staff of the future, we push research boundaries, and with our £1bn turnover we are an economic engine for the wider East Midlands and beyond.

This is particularly exciting time for Leicester’s Hospitals. We have been given £450m by the Government to provide a host of new facilities and reconfigure services between our three main sites. Flagship projects include a new Children’s Hospital, a new combined Maternity Hospital on the Leicester Royal Infirmary site, a new Treatment Centre, and two new Intensive Care Units. Equally importantly, we are going “paperless”, with a £12m investment in our NerveCentre computer system to help our team deliver world class care.
