The post holder will contribute to the continued development of our Ambulatory Pleural Services within the Respiratory department and Ambulatory Care Unit (ACU) and partake in leading and developing pathways such as pleural effusions, suspected pulmonary embolism and the National Optimal Lung Cancer Pathway.

The department is keen to recruit staff who have skills in bronchoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound service (EBUS) and thoracoscopy.

The consultant team works closely with specialty trainees and a variety of specialist nurses. There are currently two lung cancer nurses, two COPD nurses who run an Early Discharge Service and two asthma nurses (One WTE). In addition to this, there is also a physiotherapist who supports the bronchiectasis clinics.

The Trust has a reputation for providing high quality well-structured care in a friendly and supportive environment. We are committed to achieving Equal Opportunities and operate a No Smoking Policy.

The post holder will join a substantive multi-disciplinary team and the successful candidate will be well supported working in a friendly, modern and well equipped unit and will be joining a trust with excellent professional and academic facilities.
