Do you want to work in a progressive, forward thinking department?


If you are committed to high standard patient care and enjoy working in a friendly, highly motivated team then Leighton Theatres could be the right career destination for you.

We have a vacancy for a qualified practitioner (band 5 nurse / ODP) to join our scrub teams. There will be a rotation to multiple specialities as part of a bespoke staff development programme.

Our department has 8 ultra-modern theatres, including 2 Orthopaedic Barn style theatres and 2 integrated ‘Laparoscopic’ theatres.  We also have 4 day case theatres and a Surgical Admissions unit on site.

As a department we are committed to patient safety and carry out regular Human Factors training across the multi-disciplinary teams.

The Theatre Management team are passionate about providing support and cultivating a safe and friendly environment for staff and patients.  We work in teams by speciality/discipline including Breast/Gynaecology/Ophthalmology, General & Emergency Surgery, Urology and ENT, Anaesthetics, Recovery and Orthopaedics /Trauma. Each team has senior staff who support their own team by providing duty rosters, annual leave allocation and training within the team.  This allows staff members a more personal working experience and helps improve job satisfaction !


We would love to hear from you if you would like a new or continuing career in theatre work.
