Job description

Job responsibilities

Be a proficient anaesthetic practitioner in Cardiothoracic Theatres, the post holder acts as a professional role model and clinical teacher. He/she also provides effective mentorship and supervision, participating in the education and training of nursing and non-nursing staff. To ensure safe, efficient timely individualised care is delivered in line with local and national targets.

The Government has announced that the legal requirement for all NHS workers in England, to be double vaccinated, is currently under legislative review.

We do however encourage those in roles that have face to face contact with patients to be double vaccinated against COVID-19 (unless they are medically exempt), and are continuing to support the vaccination uptake for all staff as this remains the best line of defence.
