We are able to offer far more of our services to women in an out-patients setting than ever before. This requires us to have excellent nursing support co-ordinating the clinics, understanding and becoming an expert in the technology used, and of course providing support for our patients. This role will give you the opportunity to work in general gynaecology, hysteroscopy, cystoscopy, colposcopy, fertility and minor ops clinics as well as in our recovery area. You will need proven ability to work autonomously as well as within a team. It is essential you have some post qualification experience. Some clinics take place in outreach settings and arrangements for travel can be discussed at interview.
You will be responsible for ensuring patient experience is at the heart of all we do, working with the multi-disciplinary team to ensure smooth running of the clinic, keeping patients updated regarding waiting times, prioritising tasks and ensuring stock levels and equipment are maintained. In the recovery area you will be monitoring the recovery of up to six patients post procedure. These patients are most often patients who have undergone egg collection as part of their fertility treatment.
The ability to deal with challenging situations as well as having empathy and understanding for our patients is vital.
This role may be full or part time and the rota is likely to be fairly predictable. The hours vary from day to day dependent on the clinic activity that week. The clinics are fixed however we are open to discussions about hours and shift patterns.
