A leading Glasgow hospital for surgical and elective services is now looking for a Registered Nurse (RN Adult) or Operating Department Practitioner (ODP) to join the team as an Ophthalmic Scrub Practitioner.

The 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 an ultra-modern department able to offer a broad range of routine and advanced procedures in close coordination with comprehensive on-site imaging, pharmacy, and physiotherapy services.

The ophthalmic unit itself was purpose-built for eye-related health services and has its own self-contained consultation, diagnostic, and surgical suites. As an Ophthalmic Scrub Practitioner, you will scrub for specialist procedures, such as laser eye, cataract, and lens replacement surgeries, within a state-of-the-art environment – contributing to a new standard of excellence and supporting tangible quality-of-life improvements for patients through skilled perioperative care.

This is a permanent, ideally full-time (37.5h) position for an Ophthalmic Scrub Practitioner. The ophthalmic unit is open Mon-Fri so no weekends will be required. There is flexibility available for long or short days.

Part-time may also be considered for the right candidate.

 

Person specification:

  • (Essential) Registration with the NMC (Registered Nurse, RN Adult) or the HCPC (Operating Department Practitioner, ODP)
  • (Essential) Previous experience scrubbing for cataract surgeries

 

Benefits and enhancements include:

  • Modern environment with evident and ongoing investment
  • Private healthcare scheme, covering pre-existing conditions
  • Industry-leading, fully-funded CPD opportunities (incl. industry-recognised qualifications and leadership development)
  • Friends & Family hospital discounts
  • 25 days’ annual leave plus bank holidays, increasing to 30 days with length of service (pro rata for part-time)
  • Enhanced benefits for new parents
  • Non-contributory life assurance
  • Access to substantial retail and leisure discounts, including the Blue Light Card
  • Employee Assistance Programme for wellbeing support
  • Employee referral and recognition schemes
  • Private pension scheme
  • And more!
