Are you an experienced theatre practitioner looking for a new challenge? If so, then come and join the land of remarkable people! As a world leader in healthcare and research we have built something amazing – Alder Hey in the park, is a hospital for children, designed and inspired by children. Along with a radical and ambitious vision, the Children’s Health Park is the future design of paediatric care and there’s nothing like it anywhere in Europe.
We are currently recruiting an experienced advanced scrub practitioner for our Inpatient Theatres in Cardiac, Oncology, Cardiology and Interventional Radiology.
We have already earned our place as one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals, thanks to innovation and pioneering medical work. We treat 250,000 young patients a year and safely perform over 13,000 surgical procedures. Our catchment area has a population of over 7m, stretching from Cumbria, through Lancashire, Merseyside, most of Cheshire, parts of Shropshire, North Wales and the Isle of Man.
Children from virtually every part of the UK, and also from around the world, visit Alder Hey for specialist treatment. As a result, we are recognised as Centre of Excellence for children with cancer, heart, spinal and brain disease and have been designated as a national centre for craniofacial surgery and epilepsy surgery by the Department of Health.
With a world class £237 million facility opened in October 2015 we are now looking to expand our dedicated theatre team by recruiting motivated, dynamic senior theatre practitioners who are committed to delivering excellent patient care.
As the only hospital in the region that performs all surgical specialities this is a fantastic opportunity for experienced theatre staff to expand their existing skills and knowledge not only in paediatrics but also a diverse and challenging range of specialities
As a department we focus on patient safety, excellence and staff well-being so we are looking for individuals who have these values at the heart of all they do. In return we offer a clearly defined training and development package which includes a four –twelve (cardiac) week supernumerary preceptorship scheme for all new band 6 practitioners. We have strong links with the local HEI’s and provide you with access to a range of post registration modules and pathways including specialist paediatric theatre modules.
With an innovative workforce development strategy we offer a clear pathway from band 2 through to band 8b.
Do something amazing with your skills and experience, come and join the land of remarkable people!
