UHL Radiology is entering an exciting phase and welcomes Nurse’s / ODP’s to come and share the next steps in the journey with us.

Key Facts

 

  • We treated over a million patients last year.
  • We are one of the largest Hospital Trusts in the country.
  • We are currently re-configuring how we deliver our vascular and non-vascular Interventional Radiology.
  • We hold BSIR quality improvement exemplar status.

 

UHL is currently re-configuring sites and services leading to Interventional Radiology setting up in new accommodation.

Imaging investigations and minimally invasive treatments are central to modern healthcare services and as a speciality is evolving and rapidly expanding. The changing face of Interventional Radiology has enabled the treatment and cure of many diseases that once required the patient to undergo extensive surgical operations.

UHL Interventional Radiology provides care to day case and inpatients utilising a diverse range of minimally invasive image guided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases in nearly every organ system within the body.

 

The Registered Nurse / ODP is an integral part of the multi-disciplinary team in providing care to patients who attend for diagnostic or therapeutic treatments. The unique and varied nature of the speciality means that there is always something new and interesting to learn. Due to the diversity of patients who attend for treatment, Radiology has the ability to care for a wide range of patients of all ages, from Emergency, Medical, Surgical and Oncology specialities.

 

We can offer role development, multi-disciplinary team working and a chance to grow as part of a dedicated and highly skilled team to provide high quality patient driven services. We need a committed individual with an interest in day case care, pre assessment and scrubbing to share the next steps in our service development.

 

The post holder will be part of the team based across UHL. Current working patterns are Monday to Friday predominantly between 8am and 6pm with an out of hours on call commitment.

 

Leicester is an incredibly diverse city and celebrates many cultures. We hope you will join us as we take new exciting steps, developing the future of our service for our patients.
