The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the most successful teaching NHS Trusts in the country.

We are committed to being an ?employer of choice? offering our staff superb benefits, looking after their wellbeing, and providing access to high-quality education, training, career progression and support which enables them to provide ?healthcare at its very best ? with a personal touch?.

The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a world class health care provider, and one of the most successful teaching NHS trusts in the country. A tertiary centre, it offers the second highest number of specialist services than any other group of hospitals in the UK, with more than 1.69 million patient contacts each year, delivering innovative, high quality services locally, regionally and nationally and internationally.

The Care Quality Commission has rated us ?Outstanding? for the second time in a row.

We are the largest Trust in the country - and one of only five NHS organisations - to receive this accolade twice, which reaffirms our position as one of the UK?s top hospital trusts.

We are committed to promoting equality and diversity and recognise the benefit in providing an inclusive environment. We value and respect the diversity of our employees and aim to recruit a workforce which reflects the communities we serve, and is equipped to deliver the best service to our patients. We welcome all applications irrespective of people?s race, disability, gender, sexual orientation, religion or belief, age, gender identity, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity and in particular those from under represented groups.

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a motivated and enthusiastic Registered Nurse to expand their role to become a Nurse Specialist in Interventional Radiology.

As a Specialist Centre our patients come from across the Region and you will be working in a team that has recently been awarded exemplar status for demonstrating a maintained commitment to quality improvement from the British Society of Interventional Radiology and the Royal College of Radiologists.

We are a close-knit, multi-disciplinary team made up of consultant radiologists, nurses, assistant practitioners, health care assistants, radiographers and admin and clerical staff. We currently have four nurse specialists (including this post) working as part of the wider nursing team.

Based in the Radiology Directorate, Interventional Radiology has a presence at both the RVI and Freeman Hospital sites. We undertake highly specialised minimally invasive procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of disease including procedures delivering targeted radiation therapy and chemotherapy, repairing aortic and thoracic aneurysms, placing tunneled central lines and vascular embolisation.

The role of the Nurse Specialist is:

  • to work as part of the Interventional Radiology nursing team to support the delivery of safe , effective and evidence based nursing care for our patients who attend from a range of disciplines including oncology, vascular , gastro enterology and renal.

  • to undertake advanced practice as required by the service and this currently includes hysterosalpingograms and midline placement.

  • To undertake audit relevant to the role.

The role will also have some line management responsibilities. This is an excellent opportunity for staff wishing to increase their clinical skills and maintain close patient contact.

The Nursing Team provide an on call commitment to ensure 24 hour access to our Services and this would be approximately a 1:10 commitment (approx.1 week day in 10 and 1 weekend in 10). A current driving licence is therefore required.
