A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Cardiac and Medical Day stay Pre assessment practitioner to join the Cardiac and Medical Day Stay team.

Cardiac and Medical Day Stay is a thriving, expanding and innovative day care unit within the hospital.

The unit is committed to providing high quality, evidence based care that results in a high standard of efficiency and patient safety. The main purpose of the unit is to provide high quality pre and post diagnostic procedure care.

Patients are admitted for day case cardiology investigations, such as Coronary Angiography, Insertion of Permanent Pacemakers, DC Cardioversion, Trans-oesophageal Echocardiography and Stress Echocardiography. They are also admitted for number of other specialty medical and radiology procedures, such as Pleural aspirations and IPC insertions, Neurology, General medical investigations and some vascular work.

The candidate will be expected to manage the safe, effective and efficient pre admission process for the patients whilst supporting junior staff and leading on clinical decision making.
