This Band 6 role involves working with the team to deliver trials to our SATH population, giving them the opportunity to participate in developing novel and innovative treatments and interventions.

No two days will look the same as you work on new trials, follow ups, screening and recruiting patients while guiding them through their research journey.

This post is a 12 month secondment/fixed term opportunity and you will be fully supported to develop the skills necessary to deliver excellent care to our research participant population.

Some cross site working may be incorporated with this role

The role will involve identifying, screening, consenting, recruiting and conducting follow up with patients into many national clinical studies, as well as entering data onto spreadsheets and data collection forms. The successful post holder will have overall day-to-day responsibility for the delivery of clinical protocols into non-interventional as well as more complex interventional academic and industry studies.

About us

You will be line managed by the Band 7 Team Lead Research Sister but work closely with Consultants, Registrars and the wider MDT. You will also work closely with the Research and Innovation Team to promote the importance of clinical research across the Trust.
