Are you seeking a change? Are you looking to broaden your clinical horizons?
Interventional Radiology at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust is the leading UK Centre for interventional oncology and undertakes the full range of interventional services. It was awarded Exemplar Status in 2012 and is an integral part of the hospital’s Major Trauma service. The department has a newly commissioned and operational state of the art hybrid theatre which is one of its kind in the country.
An opportunity has arisen for motivated and enthusiastic staff nurses with good communication skills to join our highly specialised Interventional Radiology team at University Hospital Southampton. You will find no two days are the same within the department and will rotate between different clinical specialities, giving you exposure to various departments.
The role which includes scrub & circulating duties would be ideally suited to nurses with operating theatre experience. The role also includes administration of IV sedation/analgesia/medication and recovery of patients undergoing elective and emergency procedures. Experience is desirable however full training will be provided.
You will work Mon-Fri covering shifts from 8.00 – 19.00 and participate in the 24/7 on-call rota once you have gained sufficient experience. The department has plans to expand its service to 6-7 days per week therefore rota flexibility will be required. Night duty is not a requirement.
Successful applicants will be eligible to receive a £750 relocation allowance, subject to remaining employed within UHS Radiology for a minimum of a year. Recruitment and Retention premia payments are not applicable to individuals who are moving from Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust or any NHS staff working within Hampshire or the Isle of Wight, including within the Solent strategic alliance partners - i.e. Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust and Isle of Wight NHS Trust. (T&C apply)
