An exciting opportunity has arisen for two Band 5 staff nurses to join our team of nurses working within the Diagnostic Imaging Department. Diagnostic Imaging Nurses carry out many roles and responsibilities including providing high quality patient focused care, in addition to assisting the Consultant Radiologists who undertake interventional procedures for both outpatients and inpatients within the department. The role will also include the pre-assessment and booking of patients, assisting with sterile procedures, monitoring patients during procedures and post procedure recovery. The unique and varied nature of the specialty means there is always something new and interesting to learn as new procedures are developed and undertaken. Lead aprons are worn for several hours at a time, and there is a certain amount of manual handling of patients, beds and trolleys.
If you are dynamic and motivated, have excellent communication skills and up to date knowledge in an acute setting and would like to face a new challenge then this is the role for you. The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 2 years’ experience as a band 5 nurse in an acute setting, theatre, ITU or angio suite are especially useful. Return to Practice may be considered.
The core hours are between 08:00 and 18:00 Monday to Friday, with flexibility of days in this part-time post. However work patterns may change in the future as the service requirements change. There is also a potential for on-call. The post is in both the interventional theatre and Diagnostic Imaging Department.
