A diverse, interesting and challenging range of specialties is where you will want to pursue your nursing career.

Our Surgical Assessment Units provide triage care for emergency surgical and urology patients. They are busy yet organised, fast paced workplaces that allow you to focus and develop your patient assessment skills with ambulatory care provided as required.

The pathway for elective surgery provides nurses the opportunity to care for patients during Pre assessment and Day case admission.  Post-operative recovery is delivered in our upper Gastrointestinal, Colorectal and Urology care wards by experienced staff with expert knowledge and skills.

Leicester hospitals are privileged to be able to support patients who require specialist care provided in Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Endoscopy and our nurses are encouraged to develop extended roles ensuring the successful implementation of national strategies such as the Bowel Cancer Screening programme.

We will offer you extensive opportunities for further training and progression, enhancing your skills through our robust induction programme and individual development plans tailored to your future career pathway.  Bespoke rotational opportunities are also available for our staff.

You will have the support of our dedicated and experienced ward sisters, matrons and education teams who value your personal development and want to work with you to enable you to reach your full potential, with a range of options from apprenticeship to advanced nurse practitioner.

Whichever speciality you are interested in, our patients are at the heart of everything we do and we strive to make their experience a positive one.

We have opportunities for experienced and newly qualified staff to develop and flourish within a supportive surgical environment. Current qualified NHS experience is not always necessary as we can work with you to develop your acute nursing skills in an area that will allow you to build your confidence.

We look forward to welcoming you to our teams who are passionate, motivated and dedicated to providing excellent care in our specialities.
