University Hospitals of Leicester
Cardiac Investigations
Glenfield Hospital, Leicester

Due to expansion we have a number of posts available for highly specialised Cardiac Physiologists (Band 7) within the Cardiac Rhythm Management section of the Cardiac Investigations Department.

Are you an experienced Band 6 looking to further your career, or already a Band 7 and wanting a change of scenery and the opportunity to further develop your skills? Look no further! We are seeking applicants who are currently looking for the next step in their careers, who are highly motivated, willing to develop their skills and want to join our dynamic and caring team.

The University Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust is based across three sites in the exciting, multicultural city of Leicester, in the heart of England. The Trust is one of the largest tertiary cardiac departments in the UK providing a full range of standard and complex, invasive and non-invasive diagnostic tests, and routinely performing complex interventional techniques on adult and congenital patients.

As a local specialist provider we implant over 900 pacemakers and over 200 ICD’s per year, including 150 biventricular devices which are all followed up in our devices clinic.

In addition we have two dedicated EP labs where we perform over 700 procedures per year including complex AF and VT ablation using the Carto, Precision and Rhythmia mapping systems.

Candidates will have BHRS accreditation or IBHRE/NASPE exam and a minimum of three years post BSc (or equivalent) qualification experience. The successful candidate will work on a rotational basis between the devices clinic and the angiocatheter suite. You will manage your own daily caseload and assist in the development of all areas of the cardiac rhythm management service.

We are looking to attract a candidate who will be able to motivate, develop and facilitate training of junior members of staff in conjunction with the other Band 7 Physiologists. Applicants are required to have good organisational skills and excellent interpersonal skills and will be required to work as part of a team in this busy department. In return we are able to offer access to training and development opportunities and a wide variety of procedures. There may also be the option of being involved in our non-physician ILR implanting service for the right individual.

We are a progressive, enthusiastic team waiting to welcome new members and actively encourage continued professional development.

The department runs a 24/7 primary PCI service so participation on the on call rota is a key requirement of this role. The Trust is working towards 7 day working so the successful applicant will be expected to work weekends, bank holidays and evenings as part of their shift patterns.
