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”.

University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a major Teaching Hospital and Research Centre with state of the art facilities. We currently have vacancies within the Theatres and Anaesthetics Division.

Our operating theatre is a busy and dynamic environment setting the benchmark for clinical excellence. We have a total of 19 operating rooms which cover different specialities ranging from General surgery, Trauma and orthopaedics, Bariatrics and upper GI surgery, Colorectal, Gynaecology, Urology, Oncology, Paediatrics, Maxilo Facial, ENT, Vascular and Plastic/ Breast surgery.

Working as a TheatrePractitioner you will be required to function effectively as a member of the peri-operative team to ensure the provision and development of an efficient and high quality surgical service, particularly in Trauma and Orthopaedics. You will need to deliver a holistic care package which is current, evidence based and effective. You will also have a broad knowledge and skill base including communication and team working skills, in order that you contribute to the smooth running of the theatre department.

We are committed to ongoing professional development and opportunities exist to undertake a wide range of in-house and university based training programme.

Opportunities are available to rotate in areas such as Main Theatres, Day Surgery Unit, Macmillan Cancer Centre, and EGA Obstetric Theatres.

The successful candidate will hold the appropriate qualifications to be a current registered practitioner (RGN or ODP) and demonstrate evidence of continuing professional development.
