The role encompasses support of patients during their outpatient and theatre experience, involving outpatient clinic support, management of nurse led clinics including pre-operative patient assessment, surgical scrub and circulating skills and surgical pre and post- operative patient care. As such, the role is varied, providing opportunity to develop, maintain and enhance clinical skills in both an outpatient setting and the theatre environment, whilst working alongside a range of multi-disciplinary teams.
