University Hospitals of Leicester staff 

Location: UK » East Midlands » LE
Sector: Health

University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust is cutting its workforce by the equivalent of 317 full-time staff in 2010/11, which is three percent of total staffing.

The Trust is actually cutting 434 posts - 278 of them in clinical areas, with the remaining 156 non-clinical - but this is partly offset by 117 new posts the Trust is creating during the year.

The breakdown of the posts that are being cut is as follows:

Acute care:
Clinical - 126 FTE (full-time equivalent staff)
Non-clinical - 19 FTE

Clinical support:
Clinical - 66 FTE
Non-clinical - 3 FTE

Clinical - 2 FTE
Non-clinical - 116 FTE

Planned care:
Clinical - 69 FTE
Non-clinical - 12 FTE

Women and children’s:
Clinical - 15 FTE
Non-clinical - 6 FTE

These cuts include reductions in bank and agency workers and overtime as a result of productivity improvements (e.g. reduced sickness absence), as well as through the management of the recruitment process.

Of the 117 newly created posts, 85 percent are clinical and 15 percent non-clinical.

The Trust runs three hospitals in Leicester - Glenfield Hospital, Leicester General Hospital, and Leicester Royal Infirmary.
