About the Role

Our Blood Sciences Department (comprising of Clinical Biochemistry and Haematology/Blood Transfusion) are looking to appoint a suitably qualified, experienced and HCPC registered Biomedical Scientists, to assist with the provision of the hospital diagnostic service.

Candidates working towards HCPC registration will also be considered.

SaTH Pathology Services have accredited UKAS standards and in October 2017 the Blood Sciences department had a complete equipment refresh. The Biochemistry section is equipped with Roche Cobas 6000 analysers and Roche pre-analytics and middleware. The Haematology section is equipped with a Sysmex XN and CS2500 analysers. IH1000 and Biorad Gelstations are in use on our Blood Transfusion Department. The department has full accreditation and is an approved IBMS/HCPC training laboratory.

The Trust

This is a special time to join the Trust as we have successfully secured more than £312m of investment from the Government for the reconfiguration of our two hospitals with a decision due imminently.  NHS Future Fit proposes that The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital provides emergency care services (including women and children’s inpatient services) and The Princess Royal Hospital provides planned care services. Both hospitals would have an Urgent Care Centre that is open 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

The proposed model of hospital care has been designed by members of the public and over 300 clinicians, GPs and social care professionals. Whichever option is approved, NHS Future Fit’s proposed model will ensure a wide range of hospital services will still be available at both hospital sites and, importantly, stay within the county.
