Looking for a new and exciting challenge? Then think about working in NHS Forth Valley in the heart of Scotland.
The Cardiology Department at NHS Forth Valley aims to provide safe, person-centred and sustainable cardiology services with and for the people of Forth Valley.
• in a person-centred approach, addressing each individual patient’s needs
• that we should prioritise compassion, courtesy, professionalism, integrity, openness and respect in our relationships with patients, their families and each other;
• that efficient and effective services are best delivered when our staff are highly skilled, motivated, person-centred and work together as a team; and
• in continuously improving everything we do.
The Cardiology service functions as an integrated unit with all members contributing to a team-based approach to patient care. This appointment will play an important part in the development and continuous improvement of Cardiology services. With this post we are looking to cement our existing services that support people with heart failure. A complimentary subspecialist interest in cardiac MRI and/or inherited cardiac conditions is encouraged, however, as we offer a wide range of specialist cardiology services, we can accommodate a range of candidates’ interests that align with department and organisation ambitions. General Cardiology lies at the heart of our service and candidates will be expected to have a wide range of experience in Cardiology and possess the MRCP (UK) or equivalent.
In addition to the consultant workforce, the Cardiology senior team includes a Consultant Nurse/Cardiology Department Manager and a Cardiology Investigations Manager. The department is supported by several Advanced Nurse Practitioners and a multidisciplinary Cardiac Rehabilitation Team. We also have a team of Specialist and Highly Specialist Clinical Physiologists (EHRA and BSE accredited). We deliver a high quality service based around multi-professional working and the successful candidate would be required to work closely with and support multi-professional colleagues in ward-based, clinical and remote working. We are ambitious in the development of innovative strategies to bring care closer to patients in their own local setting and are currently investigating new technologies from smart-phone based technologies to video-consultations.
You can look forward to a warm welcome and strong support from colleagues. Our hospital is situated in the heart of Scotland, nestled against the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, and close to vibrant towns that are richly endowed with excellent cultural and sporting facilities, offering good transport links to Edinburgh and Glasgow.
