We have a really exciting opportunity for a newly qualified Cardiac Physiologist to join our award winning team.

Our Cardiology services, which are some of the most advanced in the country, cover a range of services including our acute cardiology ward, angiography suite and our coronary care unit which is the PPCI Centre for Norfolk. In addition to this we are the Norfolk Heart Attack Centre and are winners of student placement of the year.

We are incredibly lucky to have a department with a large non-invasive workload including Ambulatory monitoring, pacemaker and loop recorder follow-up and echocardiography (TTE, TOE, stress echo and congenital heart disease). With new space being created by the £7 million spend on our new IRU unit the department is going from strength to strength.

As part of our ongoing commitment to developing and training new talent we are looking to recruit a newly qualified Cardiac Physiologist to join our supportive team. This is an amazing opportunity to work in cardiac catheter labs helping to perform coronary angiography, including PCI, primary PCI and in the implant of pacemakers (including ICD, CRTP and CRTD) and implantable loop recorders. We also perform electrophysiology studies in the department.

The successful applicant will receive full training to give you the skills to work independently for coronary angiography and the implant of pacemakers / ILRs and ambulatory monitoring. You will also benefit from regular sessions in echocardiography and pacemaker follow-up clinics.

In Norwich a staggering 77% of people say they love their job.
