We want to be recognised by Nurses, Midwives and Allied Health Professionals regionally and nationally as a centre of excellence to work and to receive care.

I am very excited about the journey ahead and the difference we can make together to ensure UHL is a great place to work and to receive care. Our priorities for the coming year are:

  • Reduce avoidable hospital acquired harm
  • Strengthen the voice of the patient
  • To make UHL the employer of choice for NMAHP’s
  • To increase research opportunities and develop clinical academic career pathways across LLR
  • To lead the digital health agenda

Thank you for everything you do every day to look after our​ patients and each other.

Julie Hogg,
Chief Nurse

Take the next step towards a more rewarding career


At University Hospitals of Leicester, we are a forward thinking team with a philosophy of providing the best possible care to women, babies, and their families. This is achieved by providing effective training, education and working collaboratively as a midwifery and medical team.


At UHL nursing is varied and exciting with many of our specialities offering the latest technologies, techniques and medicines. We develop a highly skilled and motivated nursing workforce who care for our patients and each other with kindness and respect


The Nursing Associate role is still relatively new. Depending on the place of employment, skills and responsibilities will vary but they play a key role within the healthcare team. UHL host the Leicestershire School of Nursing Associates that have up to 150 trainee places per year.


At University Hospitals of Leicester, Healthcare Assistants make sure the patient experience is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. It can also be the stepping stone into many other NHS roles, particularly roles such as a Nursing Associate or Registered Nurse.
