6703 Cardiac Physiology Team Lead - Cardiology Clinical Physiology Department

Job description          

About the role: We are seeking an expert practitioner in echocardiography to join our cardiac physiology management team in NHSGGC South Sector; in a pivotal leadership role based at the New Victoria Hospital (NVH). At NVH, the role comprises (i) operational management of the cardiac physiology service (ii) leadership, development and supervision of the team and (ii) clinical leadership of the echo service. There is also a sector-wide remit for echocardiography (extending to the West Glasgow Ambulatory and Queen Elizabeth University Hospitals), which encompasses the scientific and professional leadership of the echo team as a whole, as well as provision of expert scientific input to inform the strategic direction and workforce planning for the echo service, by the Sector Manager and Imaging Consultants. We support a broad range of both clinical and non-clinical educational activities and there is good access to funding opportunities. We also value the transferable skills acquired through other professional activities and would be especially keen to attract a progressive, outward looking individual who is actively engaged with the wider healthcare science or cardiology community. About us: NHSGGC serves the largest catchment population in Scotland, with South Sector hospitals serving more than half of this with a cardiac physiology workforce of 58 WTE. Although an ambulatory care hospital, the cardiac physiology department at NVH provides complex as well as routine diagnostic procedures to a substantial population. In addition, NVH participates in several GGC-wide Physiologist-led GP direct access services (including the investigation of murmurs, palpitations and heart failure). The department is modern, spacious and well-equipped and the hospital has good transport links. The echocardiography service at NVH provides TTE, TOE, stress and contrast studies and a dedicated service to oncology. The postholder would also participate in and provide clinical leadership for one or more of the following services: ACHD clinics (at WGACH), 3D echo (at QEUH) inherited cardiac conditions clinics (at QEUH) or oncology research (at the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre), according to their interests and expertise. South Sector Imaging Consultants are research-active and the postholder would be expected to utilise this resource to develop Physiologist-led projects. NVH has a large device follow up service including approx. 200 CRT and ICD patients. Pacemaker implantation is performed at QEUH with complex device implantation presently undertaken by the Golden Jubilee National Hospital; with plans to develop this service at QEUH. NVH performs the usual repertoire of routine non-invasive testing, including provision of a RACPC. There are 4 Consultant Cardiologists based at NVH whose clinical interests include imaging, heart failure and CRM. NHSGGC has a very active Managed Clinical Network for Heart Disease which provides a platform for South Sector Physiologists to lead or participate in wider service developments. There is also good clinician engagement in the development of extended scope roles for Physiologists.
You must hold professional registration and accreditation to be shortlisted; further requirements are detailed in the person specification. Informal discussions / visits are welcomed; please contact Rachel Cooper, Cardiac Physiology Sector Manager.
