Theatre Scrub Practitioner (ODP or Scrub Nurse)
PAEDIATRIC NEUROSURGICAL & CARDIOTHORACIC THEATRE SCRUB PRACTITIONERS
We’re really proud of our Children’s Hospital and its facilities – including our operating theatre department, which offers state of the art facilities in a dedicated paediatric environment. We are the largest paediatric centre in the South west region, and offer 24/7 support to children right across the region as both a Major Trauma Centre and Burns Specialist unit – as well as being a recognised Centre of Excellence for children with cancer, heart and brain disease.
We are currently able to offer experienced theatre practitioners the exciting opportunity to develop their scrub skills in the specialised field of either paediatric cardiac or neuro surgery. Ideally you will already have experience in one of these specialities in particular, but we are able to offer a full orientation and training programme to individuals who show commitment to developing their clinical skills within these fields. Experience in paediatric theatres specifically is again desirable but not essential, as your theatre skills will be transferable.
You will need to be committed to developing yourself and your skills, and be prepared to cover a full range of shifts required to provide a 24/7 emergency service. In return, we can offer you the opportunity to broaden your existing knowledge of perioperative practice in a supportive and friendly environment.
