Frimley Health is a Trust where great care and great careers go hand in hand. We’re three hospitals working closely with each other and with the communities we serve in Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire  - our organisation has brought Heatherwood and Wexham hospitals into the fold of Frimley Park Hospital and its wider community services.

You’ll find the highest standards of clinical excellence across our locations and a friendly, supportive, open culture that brings everyone together. For our team it means a great day-to-day working experience – in a Trust with strong leadership, a clear sense of direction and an exciting vision for the future.

The unit is JAG accredited and participates in the National Bowel cancer Screening and Bowel Scope program.

 

An opportunity has arisen for a senior nurse with substantial endoscopy experience including ERCP, EUS, and Capsule Endoscopy to join our team to provide clinical leadership to the Endoscopy Unit.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate excellent communication skills, be polite, professional and enthusiastic and be able to work within a multidisciplinary team. You have to be skilled in assisting with both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. You are required to be committed to the delivery of high quality patient care.

The role will require you to have sound knowledge of JAG accreditation process. The services are constantly evolving, therefore giving staff the opportunity to develop and learn new skills.
