Endoscopy - Full and Part time Registered Nursing Vacancies available
We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated Registered Nurses, with a passion for Endoscopy or those who would like to explore a career change, to join our team.
The Endoscopy Unit at NNUH is the largest in the UK and operates Monday to Friday; this role requires some on call working however you will not be working nights or weekends as part of your standard working week.
Our dynamic and friendly department offers nurses the opportunity to work alongside a multidisciplinary team in a variety of settings including pre-operative assessment clinics, assisting with therapeutic and diagnostic patient procedures and caring for patients in recovery.
Endoscopy has benefited from a huge investment with the construction of the state of the art Quadram Institute on site at NNUH. We can now carry out 40,000 procedures each year making NNUH home to the largest Endoscopy Unit in Europe
The Quadram Institute which opened in December 2018 has also created new interfaces between food science, gut biology, human health and disease, capitalising on the world-class bioscience cluster based at the Norwich Research Park. NNUH clinicians work alongside scientists to conduct research to improve human health and wellbeing throughout life.
