Startdate: ASAP

A new opportunity is now available for a Registered Nurse (RN Adult) or Operating Department Practitioner (ODP) to join the team at a leading Glasgow hospital for surgical and elective services as an Endoscopy Practitioner.

This flagship hospital is benefitting from an extensive ongoing investment that has kept its facilities and clinical technology at the forefront of the industry, recently seeing refurbishment of its patient bedrooms and the construction of additional operating theatres. The result is a high-quality, ultra-modern environment for holistic care across a broad range of specialties, including endocrinology, cardiology, oncology, rheumatology and more.

While the theatres see advanced procedures often requiring a longer stay – such as complex general, orthopaedic, and cosmetic surgeries – the endoscopy suite is a dedicated unit for day-case procedures and, as part of an outstanding-rated clinic, has its own consulting room, procedure room, and recovery area.

As an Endoscopy Practitioner, you will join an experienced and highly skilled team in performing a wide range of investigations and surgeries, such as for ENT concerns, urinary tract dysfunction, and examinations of the large and small intestines, aided by the latest in endoscopic equipment for the smoothest possible diagnosis and treatment process.

This is a permanent, ideally full-time (37.5h) position for an Endoscopy Practitioner (part-time may also be considered). The endoscopy unit is open Mon-Fri so no weekends will be required.

Should you be considering a relocation to Glasgow, a support allowance can be offered to help you with your move*.

 

Person specification:

  • (Essential) Registration with the NMC (Registered Nurse, RN Adult) or the HCPC (Operating Department Practitioner, ODP)
  • (Essential) At least 12 months’ previous endoscopy experience

  • Modern environment with evident and ongoing investment
