Heatherwood Hospital, Ascot, Berkshire
Are you an enthusiastic, flexible and ambitious Registered Nurse/ODP with relevant experience gained during your training and a real desire to develop professionally and personally? Then make the move to Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust as a Band 5 Registered Theatre Practitioner and see your career flourish in a brand new state-of-the-art hospital.
There really has never been a better time to join the Trust. We’re opening a brand new hospital in Ascot this winter which will mark a new chapter for both the communities we serve and the people that will work here. A dedicated, state-of-the-art facility using the latest technology to deliver outstanding services, Heatherwood Hospital will specialise in planned, non-emergency operations. It will also have six operating theatres, 48 inpatient beds and 22 day-case cubicles and provide operations, diagnostics and outpatient care to NHS and private patients alike. This is your chance to get in at the start of what promises to be a truly exciting journey.
About the role
As a skilled member of the theatre team, we’ll rely on you to provide a high level of support to the perioperative team that delivers high quality patient care within the theatre area. You’ll also be responsible for helping the Theatre Manager to establish a good working atmosphere and ensure the effective/efficient use of staff, supplies and services. Acting as a communication channel between team members, medical staff, wards and departments will be an important aspect of the role too, as will participating in training programmes for junior staff and other disciplines seconded to the department. And, when it comes to ensuring equipment is regularly checked and maintained in a safe manner or helping us achieve the Quality Assurance and Risk Management objectives set by the Trust, again, we’ll count on you to play your part.
To succeed, you’ll need to be relevantly qualified, with a good understanding of theatre practice, possibly gained via theatre experience in Anaesthetics, Scrub or Recovery (although this is not essential) and the ability to work within RCN and AFPP guidelines and standards. You’ll also need to be adaptable about working to meet demands, confident in your ability to lead and run the department out of hours and willing to take part in an on-call rota, including nights/weekends. Comfortable collaborating as part of a dedicated team and great at prioritising your work, you have excellent communication skills, a logical approach to problem solving and are proficient using PCs.
Join us, and you’ll be in the ideal setting to deliver excellent care and get more from your career, not least as we’re implementing new patient pathways and ways of working, thus freeing up more time for our people to focus on what they do best. The benefits on offer are brilliant too, and include flexible working, compassionate leave, a staff gym, onsite nurseries and restaurants, staff accommodation and a range of wellbeing programmes. Put simply, we can provide you with everything you need, in an open, supportive culture where the focus on learning and development will empower you to excel, develop and progress.
