Interventional Radiology provides day case care and utilizes a diverse range of minimally invasive image guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system within the body. The changing face of Interventional Radiology has enabled the treatment and cure of many diseases that once required the patient to undergo extensive surgical operations. Imaging investigations and minimally invasive treatments are central to modern healthcare services and as a specialty are evolving and rapidly expanding.


The Registered Nurse / ODP are an integral part of the MDT in providing care to patients who attend for diagnostic or therapeutic treatments. The unique and varied nature of the specialty means that there is always something new and interesting to learn. Due to the diversity of patients who attend for treatment, Radiology has the ability to care for a wide range of patients of all ages, from Emergency, Medical, Surgical and Oncology specialties.


We can offer role development, Multi-disciplinary team working and a chance to grow as part of a dedicated and highly skilled team to provide high quality patient driven services. We need a committed individual with an interest in day case care, pre assessment and scrubbing to share the next steps in our service development.


The post holder will be part of the team based across UHL. Current working patterns are Monday to Friday predominantly between 8am and 6pm with an on call commitment.


Leicester is an incredibly diverse city and celebrates many cultures. We hope you will join us as we take new exciting steps, developing the future of our service for our patients.
