Aberdeen Royal Infirmary
Nurses working in the Radiology Service provide care for both inpatients and outpatients attending the Emergency Care Centre, Ward 401, Cardiac Cath Labs and Radiology, including Interventional Radiology.
These positions will appeal to nurses with a variety of interests due to the large range of procedures which patients may undergo. This can range from ultrasound scans to Endovascular Aneurysm Repair in Interventional Radiology theatres, or Percutaneous Coronary Intervention in the Cardiac Cath labs. Patients may attend as emergency admissions via paramedics for Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PPCI) or via the Emergency Department for embolisation of a bleeding vessel following trauma. At the other end of the acuity spectrum are elective and urgent patients, as well as day case admissions.
We are looking for dynamic, motivated and enthusiastic nurses, preferably with Radiology/Cardiology experience, who are looking for a new challenge. The successful candidates must demonstrate willingness to learn and be able to work effectively within the multi-disciplinary team. Your priority will be to provide safe, effective, person-centred care. You must be able to work well in a high pressure environment, have excellent communication skills and the ability to adapt to ever changing scenarios such as rapid changes in the patient's condition. Successful candidates will participate in seven day working and the on call rota after a period of training.
We are one of the few Radiology Services in the UK with Medical Support Nurse and Practice Educator roles. This, as well as role extension opportunities, offer potential career development pathways. Further developments are planned, supported by our Improvement Programme which is empowering staff to make a difference.
