Endoscopy Recruitment Event

Wednesday 1st August 2018 1-7pm Endoscopy Unit, St Peter's Hospital

The Endoscopy Unit is pleased to announce they are holding their first recruitment event for band 5 registered nurses

This is a great opportunity to join the award winning* Ashford and St Peters NHS Foundation Trust. Here at the Trust we have just launched our new strategy and our vision is to provide an outstanding experience and the best outcome for patients and the team. The Trust has strong values putting our patients at the heart of all we do, with a real together we care approach.

On the day you can meet our clinical teams and find out more about the department and have a look around and see some of the equipment used. You can also find about the career and professional development opportunities within the department, as well as flexible working opportunities.

Previous experience in Endoscopy is not required just a compassionate and positive attitude. This is an ideal opportunity for nurses looking for a new challenge or new graduates starting their nursing careers. Full training will be provided including a period of supernumerary working.

The Unit consists of three procedure rooms, twelve recovery beds, admissions area, and a gastrointestinal investigations clinic specifically designed for non-endoscopic GI investigations.

Our JAG accredited department offers a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures ranging from Gastroscopy, Colonoscopy, PEG Insertions and ERCP, pH Manometry, Capsule Endoscopy and Breath Tests. We also perform non GI procedures like Bronchoscopy and Pleural Tap. The Unit is open 08:00-19:00 Monday – Saturday and we provide an Out of Hours on-call service at weekends and Bank Holidays.
