Band 5 Staff Nurse/Theatre Practitioner/ODP

The trust is able to offer experience in a variety of specialties across the sites, all of which have their own specialist services. All levels of staff are friendly and welcoming and enjoy teaching staff new skills.

Heartlands is the Thoracic center for the Midlands and staff recently carried out the world’s second 3D printed custom built sternal implant with a successful outcome for the patient one month post-operatively.

In September 2015 Heartlands saw the opening of a £4.5million Vascular Hybrid Theatre. The use of modern, high tech equipment has resulted in improved procedure times for patients. The Hybrid Theatre is on of very few in the country where nurses routinely scrub for both open and endoscopic surgery rather than the traditional method of radiology scrubbing for the endoscopic part, thereby enhancing the scrub nurses skill. The Vascular Surgeons are world renowned for their complex surgery service, with patients traveling from far afield for their operations.

Heartlands has a 24/7 Emergency Theatre as well as providing a seven day Trauma service. Other specialities on site include ENT, Upper GI including Bariatric, Colorectal, Urology, Ophthalmology and Gynaecology
