Staff Nurse / ODP / Paramedic

Job Reference: 415-Z21-369

Northern Devon Healthcare Trust
£24,907 - £30,615 Per Annum Pro Rata

Staff Nurse / ODP / Paramedic


Where else can you get a good work life balance, the excitement of an emergency situation with the structure of elective procedures and the support to develop personally and professionally?

The unit provides a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and strives to provide exceptional levels of patient care in order to meet the expanding needs of the local community. We see around 200 patients per week, which includes an out of hour’s service for upper GI bleeds. You will be expected to partake in the OOH rota.

In order to arrive in theatres to attend the upper G I bleed emergencies, you will need to live within a 30 minute travel radius (However on-call rooms can be arranged given enough notice).

The unit is looking for enthusiastic, motivated and flexible registered nurses, paramedics or ODPs to join our experienced, friendly and dedicated team. The role involves the admission and recovery of the patient and working within the endoscopy theatres. The post is rewarding, dynamic and you will get a sense of achievement from the outstanding care you deliver.

Endoscopy experience is desirable but not essential as training is provided.

Our current working hours are Monday to Friday 08:00 - 18:30 and one Saturday per month. This may change in the future dependent on the demand of our services.

The working hours for this post will be 30 per week.

For further information, please contact Endoscopy Manager Cara Jones on 01271 349180.

This post is being offered as Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust and the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust continue to develop our long standing partnership with a view to becoming a single integrated organisation across Eastern and Northern Devon. Working together gives us the opportunity to offer unique and varied careers across our services combining the RD&E’s track record of excellence in research, teaching and links to the university with NDHT’s innovation and adaptability.

Our values guide everything we do. At all times, we aim to:

  • Demonstrate compassion
  • Strive for excellence
  • Respect diversity
  • Act with integrity
  • Listen and support others

Our teams of care professionals work with patients and their families to support peoples’ independence, health and wellbeing. We provide support to avoid hospital admissions, and if an admission is necessary, we try to make each patient’s stay in hospital as short and effective as possible before working with them on a safe discharge home.

In our most recent staff survey, our staff voted us in the top 10% of NHS provider organisations to work for and we also came out as the top provider in the South West for our overall results. Our patients (through the Friends and Family Test) regularly report an average of over 95% satisfaction with our services.

Please note that we may close this vacancy early if we receive a high volume of applicants.
