Are you an experienced nurse who’s looking for a unique opportunity to expand and develop your skills? Would you like the chance to build and manage your own caseload as an autonomous practitioner as well as work as part of a team? Then consider a move to Radiology department at Guy’s and St Thomas’.
As a Clinical Nurse Specialist, you’ll work within the MDT in clinics, preparing and supporting patients and families pre and post operatively.
What’s more, you’ll have the opportunity to get involved with local, national and international research and audit projects, play a vital role in influencing the patient pathway and get directly involved in decisions about how care is provided.
You will provide expertise for Interventional Radiology procedures to all patients and families including pre-assessment clinics and preparation and follow up of patient for their procedures.
This is rare opportunity for a clinical nurse specialist to expand and develop their skills, manage their own caseload, as well as work as part of a team. Indeed, you’ll collaborate with colleagues from a range of specialties including surgery, oncology, medicine and radiology services.
A key component to this role is communicating with the MDT and pre assessing patients, you’ll be an excellent communicator, plus be a dedicated and highly organised professional. This is a new role in the department so you will have the opportunity to help develop the service and therefore will be a motivated and self directed individual.
