Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest hospital Trusts in the country and provides acute elective and specialist care for the local community across two sites in Gloucester and Cheltenham. Gloucestershire is a rural county with an historic past, combining picturesque areas such as the Cotswolds, together with excellent shopping centres, museums, schools, leisure activities, and restaurants.
The JAG accredited Endoscopy Unit at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital is a busy nurse-led unit that serves as both a Regional Endoscopy Training Centre and National Bowel Cancer Screening Centre. In addition to this, the unit encompasses a purpose built endoscope decontamination area. The unit handles emergency procedures as well as caring for routine inpatients/outpatients. Pre-assessment for colonoscopy has been in place for just over a year and this is expanding as new GP referral pathways are being developed. In addition to this the unit also have specialist lists including: ERCP, Peg Insertion, Radio Frequency Ablation, Endoscopic Ultrasound, Endoscopic Mucosal Resection, Enteroscopy, Complex Polyp lists, Bronchoscopy, EBUS and Thoracoscopy.
Due to internal promotions we are seeking enthusiastic, highly motivated nurses with at least six months experience in an acute setting, a commitment to team working and a keen interest in continuous improvement. Experience in an endoscopy setting would be an advantage, but full training will be given to nurses from different backgrounds.
All nurses will complete a bespoke induction programme which will be tailored to your specific needs. Once completed, you will be expected to participate in the cross-county on-call rota providing out of hours emergency care. Following induction you will be expected to undertake a number of specific endoscopy courses in line with your ongoing development programme.
37.5 hours x 3 posts (full time and part time will be considered)
