An opportunity has arisen for a Band 6 Deputy Sister / Charge Nurse position in Cardiac Angio Catheter Suite.

We require motivated, enthusiastic people who are able to adapt to the ever-changing needs of the service. The successful individual will be working closely with Cardiac Physiologists, Radiographers and Cardiologists who also have their own leaders and Heads of Service therefore the ability to work effectively as part of a large multi-disciplinary team is essential.

Glenfield Hospital is a regional centre with an International reputation for Interventional Cardiology, many new and innovative procedures are performed in our Cardiac Angiocatheter Suite which comprises 5 fully operational labs accommodating a wide range of diagnostic and interventional procedures in a diverse and busy environment that caters for both adult and paediatric cases. Angiocatheter Suite procedures and innovations include but are not limited to –

• Primary Intervention Centre (emergency STEMI and Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest service).
• Full range of complex elective coronary interventions including CTO, Laser and Rotablation.
• Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation, (Transfemoral, Subclavian and Apical)

• Full range of Implantable Cardiac Devices, CRTD / CRTP including via Subcutaneous (ICD) and Transcatheter (Micra) routes.

You do not need to have prior experience of this speciality but the motivation to assist the Charge Nurse leading a team through innovation and change is essential, experience of working in Theatres, Interventional Radiology, Acute Cardiac Care, Coronary Care or Intensive Care would be desirable. It is also essential that you have a track record of prioritising a caring, compassionate and patient-centred approach as the majority of our procedures are under local anaesthetic therefore improving patient experience and communication is essential. You will be flexible, be able to personally provide a high standard of care, possess excellent communication skills and be able to prioritise a challenging workload. The successful applicant may also be given specific responsibilities for education, competency and compliance therefore a commitment to teaching and professional development is essential.

We will provide an appropriate induction/mentorship package, including the opportunity to network and gain an insight into the wider Renal Respiratory and Cardiovascular (RRCV) Clinical Management Group operations and the context of Angiocatheter Suite within the organisation. You will be joining a well-established team both within Angiocatheter Suite and in RRCV nursing leadership, however new skills and ways of working that you may bring to the post would certainly be encouraged and highly valued.

This is a full time post, normally working 4 days a week with an out of hours 'On Call' commitment (following appropriate induction and training).
