We are looking for an Assistant Respiratory Practitioner or HCA to join our excellent team. The successful candidate will perform and report upon a range of basic pulmonary function tests on a wide variety of patients. They will also be asked to perform calibration and quality control procedures on all laboratory equipment and to maintain accurate clinical records. They will also be asked to contribute to team and service development.Training will be given to ensure all testing will be to ARTP standards.
The Respiratory Investigations team consists of 8 Respiratory Physiologists who work across the Trust's sites. The department provides a diagnostic service to inpatients, outpatients and a Direct Access service for GPs. The department performs basic and advanced respiratory function tests on both paediatric and adult patients for a wide range of specialties.
The Department officially merged cross site in April this year. There has been a rapid and substantial increase in activity. We have benefited from new infrastructure and equipment purchased to keep up with the demand and in the last year alone there has been the addition of a satellite community lung function service and the introduction of three new clinics (sleep, oncology and bronchiectasis).
Our physiologist led service has been running for 10 years and has seen 800+ patients. We recently won a Trust award for outstanding achievement in living our trust values! This service has in excess of 80 new referrals per month cross site.
The departments offer a wide range of services including full pulmonary function tests (PFTS), reversibility, FeNO, mannitol, spirometry, skin allergy testing, field walk tests, hypoxic challenge test, capillary blood gases, overnight oximetry, respiratory muscle assessment, exercise induced asthma and ambulatory oxygen assessment.
Working hours will be 09:00-17:00 Monday to Friday. Work will be based mainly at Peterborough but with the expectation to work cross site at Hinchingbrooke Hospital as required.
If you think that this is the right role for you we’d love to hear from you!
