Not Only has Norwich been voted by the Guardian in 2016 as the “happiest city to work in the UK” but:

  • It is the UNESCO city of literature.
  • It is the only city to be partially within a National Park
  • The average cost of a 4 bedroom house is £240k.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) is looking for a highly motivated, enthusiastic and experienced Cardiac Physiologist to join our dynamic Cardiac Rhythm Management (CRM) team.

The CRM service is well established; including Brady, ILR, CRT±D, ICD and SICD implants and follow-ups. This is provided by 5 Cardiologists and 7 Physiologists. We are looking to expand our EP service and this post is to support that development.

The NNUH is a 1099 bed District General Hospital with a large Cardiology Department employing 15 Consultant Cardiologists and 27 Cardiac Physiologists, undertaking a wide range of invasive and non-invasive procedures.

We are looking for an enthusiastic colleague to join us and be an integral part of the CRM team. You should be confident, reliable, forward thinking and willing to work flexibly.

We performed over 1000 device implants in the last year, making us one of the biggest implanting centres in the UK. We currently have >700 complex devices and ILRs remotely monitored, using 3 of the device manufacturers systems. We also offer outreach follow up clinics to 2 surrounding DGHs.

We have a very active EP service in operation, performing a full range of diagnostic EP studies and ablation. 

You must have at least three years’ experience working as a band 6 in CRM; and either have or be working towards accreditation in Devices and/or Electrophysiology. (BHRS / IBHRE / EHRA)
