At Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust we are proud that we care for our staff as much as our patients.
Central Manchester Foundation Trust is a leading integrated health, teaching, research and innovation campus in the thriving city of Manchester. We offer a unique range of services to the North West, treating and managing the simplest to the most complex conditions and diseases. For our nurses, it means the chance to gain diverse experience in pioneering teams.
We are looking for someone to join the Cardiology team at the Manchester Heart Centre, a tertiary cardiac referral centre. The role will be to perform clinical research and clinical audit focused on improving healthcare outcomes in patients undergoing interventional cardiac electrophysiology procedures (led by Dr Gwilym Morris) and interventional coronary artery procedures (led by Dr Magdi El-omar). Research grant funding has been secured for this project.
You will be based at Central Manchester Foundation Trust and will work closely with the clinical and research teams there, but will be required to interact with and travel to other tertiary cardiac centres in the North West to assist in coordinating the research projects and patient recruitment. There will be no fixed clinical commitment, but opportunities will be available to maintain and develop clinical skills by agreement with your supervisors.
The ideal candidate will be highly motivated, have a keen interest in cardiology, cardiac physiology, and clinical research. Good communication skills and organisational skills are vital, you should be able to work well both in a group and independently. A relevant primary medical qualification and current UK professional registration are mandatory. You should recognise that the job description reflects core activities of the post and you should be prepared to adopt a dynamic and flexible approach to research.
