Suitable for newly qualified or registered staff.
We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic BMS, who is HCPC registered, to work in a small Biochemistry team at North Devon District Hospital (NDDH). Newly registered Biomedical Scientists will also be considered for this post.
The department has ISO:15189 accreditation and provides a wide range of diagnostic testing for the acute trust and to 23 GP practices across North Devon and North Cornwall. Roche modular systems have been implemented in a state of the art, climate controlled blood sciences laboratory.
All internal and externally provided training / CPD activity is encouraged where agreed and relevant.
We have an unprecedented relationship with our Primary care colleagues and the NEW Devon CCG. We are using Ordercomms to develop innovative means of syndrome-based requesting as well as optimising the service in other ways and the post holder will be involved with this. Secondary care Ordercomms will come as part of the EHR/LIMS implementation later this year.
We are looking in particular for an individual with a strong interest in innovation and service improvement, who is committed to supporting the management team in providing best service to patients.
Experience of working within an NHS Biochemistry department will be required. There will be a contractual obligation to work nights, weekends or public holidays once competency assessed. A very competitive local agreement for out of hours is offered.
A relocation package is available of up to £3,000 for those candidates who live in excess of 50 miles away, which will be repayable if the individual leaves the trust within 12 months.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a progressive and forward thinking team situated in pleasant surroundings.
We will consider applications from candidates who are within 3 months completion of their registration portfolio.
