Trainee Cardiac Practitioner

Are you an enthusiastic, motivated and qualified Cardiac Physiologist keen to join an innovative team of Cardiac Physiologists and other Health Care Professionals?
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Trainee Cardiac Practitioner at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust. We are seeking to recruit a highly motivated individual to join our busy and friendly team. You would be expected to work across all MTW sites, including the new Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) to gain exposure to all aspects of cardiology that the service provides. The post holder should already have secured a place at University of Middlesex on the Level 6 apprenticeship programme BSc Healthcare Science (Cardiac). You would be released to attend the programme at the University Campus, and would be supported to achieve work based learning objectives.
The Trust offers a range of invasive and non-invasive investigations including Physiologist led exercise stress testing, tilt testing, ambulatory monitory, device follow-up and complex invasive procedures including angiography, PCI, PPM, ICD / CRT implantation and EP. The Tunbridge Wells Hospital site holds BSE Departmental Accreditation in Transthoracic echocardiography, Stress Echo, TOE, Contrast and Bubble Studies. We run a Physiologist Led Valve Clinic at both sites and assist in the Rapid Access Heart Failure Clinic. The Maidstone site is currently in the process of applying for accreditation.
