At UCLH (University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) our success starts with you.

We want you to come to UCLH, and stay at UCLH; all of our staff have been involved in developing our values.

We believe that UCLH is a better place for patients and staff alike. This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation and a tradition of innovation.

UCLH has two major strategic projects underway. On Grafton Way, we are building a facility which will be home to one of only two high energy NHS proton beam therapy centres, Europe’s largest centre for the treatment of blood disorders and a hyper modern surgery service.  Close by on Huntley Street we are developing the new Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals. Replacing the current hospitals on Grays’ Inn Road, this development will mean we can provide multidisciplinary care to our dental and ENT patients in a modern environment. Our Grafton Way facility is due to open in 2020, with Huntley Street opening in 2019.

NHS staff survey results from 2016, UCLH has been named one of the ten best performing non-specialist trusts against the following statement: “If a friend of relative needed treatment I would be happy with the standard of care provided by this organisation”.

UCLH has a deserved reputation for patient outcomes and experience which is a reflection of our workforce and its high standards. Working here is a genuine team working experience where staff are valued and actively supported to further develop skills and knowledge. As one of the largest hospitals in the UK we support nursing career pathways to Ward Sister, CNS, ANP and Nurse Consultants. UCLH is a great place to nurse.

An opportunity has arisen for flexible and committed Band 6 nurses to join our highly motivated and vibrant Endoscopy team.

About the Unit

The Endoscopy Unit at UCLH is applying for JAG accreditation and is the only European Society of GI Endoscopy training centre in the UK. UCLH has also been a designated Bowel Cancer Screening Centre for the North Central London Sector since 2007, covering Camden, Islington, Haringey, Enfield and Barnet.

The unit currently has 7 procedure rooms and a 15 cubicle Endoscopy Hub. Patients have various Endoscopy procedures including, cystoscopies, colonoscopies, gastroscopies, PEG insertions, E.R.C.P’s, and Bronchoscopy’s. We also run the laser lists for the National Medical Laser Centre which treats patients with Barretts Oesophagus strictures and cancer patients.

The Unit also hosts regular seminar days with audio and video links into our specialist endoscopy rooms for visiting Doctors and Nurses from other Hospitals in the UK and overseas.
