An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly specialised respiratory/sleep physiologist to work at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital. The Pulmonary Function team is based in respiratory medicine in Manchester Royal Infirmary and provides a service to both children and adults.
This is a new post to provide review and reporting for a new sleep service for five days a week. You will develop respiratory physiology as a specialist area within paediatric respiratory medicine and participate in paediatric respiratory education and research programmes. There will also be outpatient pulmonary function clinics and inpatient support as part of the role.
Trained to a masters level, or be able to demonstrate you work to that level, you will have part 1 and 2 ARTP exams and be proficient in the management and development of clinical protocols. We will consider applications for those with less experience and can offer this as a training post starting as a band 6 and progressing to a band 7. With experience of providing a sleep service to paediatric patients, you will be able to use your own initiative to coordinate, plan and prioritise activities. You will have good communication and interpersonal skills and have the ability to work within the team as well as autonomously.
This is an ideal opportunity to develop your career and progress your Continual Professional Development. In return we will provide a comprehensive induction programme and you will be appraised on a yearly basis with a view to developing knowledge and skills where appropriate.
