State-of-the-art facilities? Excellent training support and opportunities? Fantastic colleagues dedicated to providing the best care for patients in a fast paced and varied environment (and who bake cakes)?

We are looking for Registered Nurses with acute experience to join Team Endoscopy in their mission to expand their services, which includes growth in exciting areas of Capsule Endoscopy, Enteroscopy, Bowel Screening, GI Endoscopy and GI pre-assessment clinics.

We undertake over 11,000 endoscopies each year and our lists usually run between 8am-6.30pm. We do not currently run night shifts.

If you have not worked in Endoscopy previously, then fear not! Our team can provide a comprehensive internal training for those new to the speciality, providing a 6-9 month programme to gain experience in elective and emergency cases. The department currently run a dedicated training session once a week for all staff to come together to develop their skills. For those who already have experience in Endoscopy, we would encourage a conversation with the senior team within the department to discuss how to best support your career aspirations.

You would be based in our Brunel building at Southmead Hospital Bristol, which has won numerous awards including the Best Designed Large Hospital in the European Healthcare Awards. This is an international award and we were the only hospital in the UK to be shortlisted.
