We are currently looking for an enthusiastic Cardiac Physiologist to work within our busy, friendly Cardiac department. We have recently moved into refurbished facilities and have a really lovely environment to work in and be proud of. We will require the post holder to work within Non-Invasive & Invasive Cardiology, including participating in our on call service.

We are an ambitious, expanding department offering a wide range of cardiac investigations. We implant and follow-up a variety of pacemakers and complex devices, including S-ICDs and conduction system pacing. We also offer TTE, TOE and physiologist led stress echo with 3D Echo machines. There is also a PCI service which includes Primary PCI.

As a Band 5 Cardiac Physiologist you will be supported to train in all the basic cardiac investigations, including PCI, to complement your experience to date. This Band 5 role is aimed primarily at someone wanting to develop in invasive skills but we would welcome applications from any budding Cardiac Physiologists!

We would recommend making contact with us for an informal conversation and we can arrange a visit if you would like.
