Full Time, Permanent
Band 7, Salary £31,696 - £41,787
Raigmore Hospital is the principal acute general hospital serving the population of NHS Highland. The catchment area is geographically the largest and most northerly of any Health Board in mainland Britain. In addition, tertiary services are provided to patients from NHS Western Isles and western parts of NHS Grampian, making the total catchment population approximately 400,000. Raigmore is a modern, well-equipped, general hospital, and its relative geographical isolation demands higher levels of services than in most hospitals of comparable size
The relevant clinical services include, 2 colorectal surgeons, 1 urologist, 2 gynaecologists, 2 upper GI surgeons, 1 adult and 1 paediatric gastroenterologist, which require a wide range of GI and bladder diagnostic and treatment services.
The GI Physiology service is currently a single person service providing a wide range of upper and lower gastrointestinal investigations including standard oesophageal manometry, 24hr pH monitoring, combined pH/Impedance monitoring (adults and paediatrics) and breath hydrogen testing, anorectal manometry, RAIR, rectal sensation and balloon expulsion, PNTML testing, 3D EAUS, PTNS and biofeedback for a range of defaecatory disorders.
This rare and exciting opportunity to join our innovative and dedicated team has arisen following retirement of the previous post holder. We are therefore looking for an experienced and dedicated physiologist to continue to provide the existing services, but who is also eager to progress themselves and the department, though service innovation and/or research opportunities.
You should hold a BSc in Gastrointestinal Physiology; although an equivalent qualification along with suitable knowledge training and experience may be acceptable. You should be registered or eligible for registration with the HCPC, AHCS and/or RCCP. Newly qualified candidates are also encouraged to apply as further supervision and training could be provided to develop a suitable candidate into the post.
