We are looking for an experienced Surgical First Assistant to join our team.

Our focus at all times is on ensuring that our patients receive high quality treatment quickly, in clean and comfortable surroundings.

About the role

You will be working as part of a friendly, welcoming and expert multidisciplinary Theatre Team supported by our experienced Theatre Manager, Heidi Soderlin.

You will be a part 1 registered NMC Nurse with experience of being an advanced scrub practitioner in a theatre. As well as being up to date with current research, key issues and developments in theatre practise you will have a sound knowledge of Health and Safety/Risk management within the operating department.

It goes without saying privacy and confidentiality are key throughout the team and you will act as an advocate for the patient in the intra-operative phase and be responsible for “total patient” care in the perioperative phase.
