Biomedical Scientist

Job Reference: 415-Z22-312

Royal Devon University Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (formerly Northern Devon Healthcare Trust)
£25,655 - £31,534 per annum pro rata

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic BMS, who is HCPC registered, to work in Biochemistry, in a small but busy team at North Devon District Hospital (NDDH).

This job would be ideal for those graduating this summer with an IBMS accredited degree and who have completed an IBMS registration portfolio.

The department of Blood Sciences is UKAS accredited to ISO 15189, holds IBMS training approval until 2023 and is committed to maintaining this as part of a wider hospital network in the South West. The department uses Q-Pulse for quality management.

We provide a comprehensive range of diagnostic services for the acute Trust and to 23 GP practices across North Devon & North Cornwall. We have an unprecedented relationship with our Primary care colleagues and the new Devon CCG. We are using Ordercomms to develop innovative means of syndrome-based requesting as well as optimising the service in other ways.

We are looking for an individual who is committed to supporting the team in providing best service for patients. Applicants are encouraged to informally visit the department to talk with the team and experience what North Devon has to offer.

Some experience of working within an NHS laboratory will be advantageous. There will be contractual obligation to work nights, weekends and public holidays once fully trained and competent.

Previous applicants need not apply.

Please note, the interview date is provisional and subject to change.

Closing Date: 1st June 2022

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.
