Endoscopy Team LeaderSpire Shawfair Park, Edinburgh£34,000 - £36,000 per annumWhen our patients make contact with us at Spire Healthcare, they do so because they know they can expect a world-class service in modern and comfortable surroundings. But more than that, they know their safety and wellbeing will be placed above all else, with no corners cut and no quick fixes. Quite the opposite, we invest in the training of our staff so that they’re always the best in their field, and we equip them with the most cutting-edge technology so that they can achieve the best results. It’s this admirable environment that you can expect when you join the team in Edinburgh. In this fantastic role, you will assess the needs of patients who require an endoscopy, explaining the procedure and any associated risks, gaining consent and drawing up an action plan for their healthcare needs while under your care. As team leader, you will guide your team through your clinical and managerial excellence, delegating manageable workloads and supporting the development of their skills. You will also continually seek ways in which we can improve our services, applying the relevant strategies and policies and suggesting ways in which we can develop the scope of our work. Utilising your incredible communication skills in order to convey sensitive information both to your colleagues and to the patients, you will have a degree-level qualification in a perioperative specialism, with evidence of continual professional development in a relevant subject. As a registered nurse or ODP, you will have endoscopy experience in a multi-disciplinary team, and your exceptional clinical reasoning skills will ensure this specialism maintains its high standards. Promoting evidence-based practice, you will challenge Consultants when appropriate, and your good business acumen will prove useful when supporting commercial development opportunities. This is a unique position with the scope to really define your career. We believe in nurturing the skills of our staff so that they continue to develop their potential, so if you’re keen to push the boundaries of your knowledge, then this is the role for you.
