We’re one of the largest acute teaching trusts in England

With a workforce of around 15,000 delivering our hospital and community services, including clinicians, non-clinical support workers, clinical and non-clinical leaders and staff with research and academic portfolios, we are one of the largest acute teaching trusts in England.

All our teams are dedicated to ‘Delivering caring at its best’ for the population of Leicester, Leicestershire, Rutland and beyond. Watch the short video below to hear more from our chief executive.


We achieve our high quality patient care through a commitment to the Trust Values, which form part of our recruitment process and help make sure the individuals we appoint are the right fit for the organisation.

We then support our staff to continually work at their best, develop their skills and expertise and have a great work/life balance – find out more in Why Leicester?.
