We are looking to recruit a motivated person who is interested in helping to provide a safe, high quality Endoscopy Decontamination service to patients at The Princess Royal Hospital. The job involves the manual cleaning and decontamination of flexible endoscopes before and after Endoscopy. Manual dexterity is an essential requirement to the role. You will become an expert in this area and will be expected to take a lead in the decontamination room. This will involve managing the equipment so that scopes are ready for both morning and afternoon lists. You will also be required to send scopes away for service and repair. You will work closely with the other members of the team to provide the best care for our patients working under strict guidelines and protocols. However, once training has been provided, staff will look to you for advice and expertise regarding decontamination and best practice.
The Endoscopy unit provides a service to both outpatients and inpatients undergoing Gastroscopy, Flexible Sigmoidoscopy, Colonoscopy, Bronchoscopy and EBUS, PEG insertion, ERCP and oesophageal, duodenal and colonic stenting. The unit is currently open Monday to Saturday between 8am and 6pm, however, evening work may also be required.
We will provide in house training and fully support your professional development. You must be conscientious and have the ability to give attention to detail. You will need to have a good standard of education and the ability to work to tight deadlines as the Endoscopy unit is extremely busy with all three Endoscopy procedure rooms running to full capacity. Excellent verbal and written communication skills and the ability to work well within a team are essential. You must also have excellent documentation and record keeping skills. Experience is desirable but not required as full training will be given. We currently have a part time position of 28.5 hours available.
