Aneurin Bevan University Health Board support flexible working.

The Blood Sciences department of Aneurin Bevan University Health Board are inviting applications for an HCPC registered Biomedical Scientist. Candidates approaching HCPC registration within 3 months may be considered, however, participation in the out of hours (OOH) rota will be an essential requirement of the post and will involve autonomous working.

We are looking for a highly motivated, enthusiastic and flexible HCPC State Registered Biomedical Scientist to join our Blood Sciences (Haematology/Blood Transfusion/Immunology) team. Experience and knowledge of Biorad IH-500 and Sysmex XN analysers would be an advantage. The post will be based in Haematology/Blood transfusion/Immunology at the Royal Gwent Hospital (RGH), but will be moving to the Grange University Hospital.

There are significant and exciting changes within ABUHB as we progress with our Clinical Futures strategy and as we move towards delivering a high quality service at our state of the art new hospital, the Grange University Hospital, due to be open in early 2021. 

Within 6 months of employment, participation in the out of hour’s service covering Haematology/Blood Transfusion will be a requirement. The OOH service is provided over 24/7, 365 days covered with a shift pattern.

The department has full UKAS accreditation, following a recent UKAS inspection at the RGH site, and is an approved HCPC training laboratory. Continuous professional development is actively encouraged.

The laboratories are well equipped to a high standard providing a wide repertoire of core and specialised investigations. The successful candidate may be required to rotate to the other sites to support the out of hour’s arrangements if the need arises.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.

Closing date: 18th February 2019
