An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated, enthusiastic and experienced AHP/ exercise physiologist or nurse to join the Pulmonary Rehabilitation Team at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. We are a dynamic and progressive department actively engaged in national audit, accreditation and research.
