Job Description

ME-0367 We are seeking to employ a full time senior cardiographer. You need to be an experienced cardiographer, able to competently perform 12 lead ECG's, and be experienced in the application of ambulatory ECG's, cardiac event recorders, and BP's. It is also important that you are able to interpret ECG’s and to provide a preliminary report for event recorders. The post holder will also provide supervision and teaching of staff and students who require teaching in performing & interpreting ECG.

The cardiology diagnostic department at SWBH NHS Trust is currently split over two hospital sites - City Hospital and Sandwell Hospital, where we carry out a variety of investigations and procedures on patients with known, or suspected cardiac conditions and currently employ over 40 staff in a multi-disciplinary team. In 2018 we are moving into our new Acute Hospital “The Midland Met”. The new state of the art acute hospital in Grove Lane, Smethwick will bring together all acute services onto one site.

You will be expected to work at both hospital sites. We do support a flexible working policy, and so would happily consider part time or job share applicants.
