Orthopaedic Scrub Nurse

We have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Orthopaedic Scrub Nurse to join the assembling team for our New Day Case Unit- Glendon Wood

The new development, a combined investment of £14.5 million, will provide much needed outpatient (including physiotherapy), diagnostics and theatre capacity to support the current waiting times for secondary care as well as meet the future demands of an ageing and growing local population, reaching over 250K people in Kettering, Corby and Wellingborough. The day case facility will provide 2 x laminar flow theatres, endoscopy suite, an ambulatory service, static CT, MRI, X-Ray & Ultrasound, 6 Consulting Rooms, and 1 Treatment Room. Our new facility will be launched at a time when Kettering General Hospital propose to commence their own redevelopment of their existing site, and therefore we can provide capacity and support to the local healthcare system whilst this is taking place.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, flexible and motivated senior orthopaedic scrub practitioner to join our friendly, dynamic, hard-working team.

It's not just the service we are developing in the last few years, we have sent our team to the London Hip and Knee meeting, AfPP conference, ZimmerBiomet Symposiums, surgical first assistant course and more. You will be supported by a proactive and forward-thinking Leadership team and have access to a dedicated theatre education and development lead.

If you have a passion for delivering the best possible care to our Self Pay, Insured and NHS patients then we would like to hear from you.

* Current NMC/HCPC registration
