Registered Nurse - Cardiac Catheter Lab - Band 5

We are expanding the team to support the introduction of an on call rota, to cover emergency primary angioplasty 24/7. We are seeking nurses with a strong clinical background, who are enthusiastic to develop new clinical skills and have a positive impact on our patients' experience.

You must enjoy working in a busy environment and be a true team player. The job can be physically demanding and you must be able to stand for long periods in the lab wearing lead protection. Excellent communication, organisational and interpersonal skills are essential. Experience within an acute setting post-registration is preferred. Training will be provided to support your Cath Lab/Cardiology career with specific competencies to support your professional development.

We are expanding the team to extend to a seven day service to improve waiting times and to cover a 24/7 emergency primary angioplasty service with an on call rota. Our team of experienced nurses have a varied job plan: they are trained to scrub and assist for all procedures, post-procedure recovery, pre-assessment clinics, patient education, and taking calls directly from paramedics for patients who may be having a heart attack in the community.
