Staff Nurse - Endoscopy, Band 5

Posted 16 September by NHS Business Services Authority

The Endoscopy Department at Musgrove Park Hospital is a fast paced and varied environment, where you would be able to learn and develop your nursing or Endoscopy skills.

We have opportunities for Registered Nurses or Operating Department Practitioners to join our highly skilled and motivated team, working across our 3 room unit at Musgrove and our single procedure room based at the new Bridgwater Hospital, we also carry out ERCP’s within our x-ray department, and general anaesthetic lists in our Day Surgery Centre.

You’ll spend your day assisting Gastroenterologists, Surgeons and our Nurse Endoscopists with a range of specialised and technical procedures such as colonoscopy and gastroscopy. You’ll be able to follow the patient’s journey through the department, from gaining their consent and preparing them for their procedure, helping them feel at ease, to assisting in their recovery and after care.

Ideally, you’ll have some endoscopy experience; however we will provide full training to the right applicant.

We have exciting plans for the future as we are in the planning phase of a new surgical centre that will include 6 Endoscopy rooms, within a brand new building.

The hours are between 8 – 6.30pm weekdays, with possible weekend working in the future.

When you are fully trained (likely to be around 6 months, but it will depend on your experience) you’ll be required to take part in the on-call rota, which includes 1 in 13 weekends and some weeknights.

We welcome any informal visits to the Department and will be happy to speak to you .

As part of the interview process, you will be required to bring the following with you: Proof of any essential qualifications stated on the Job Description, proof of NHS payslip if coming from another NHS Organisation and all ID to prove your identity and Right to Work (More details will follow for successful applicants invited to interview).
