Our Trust

Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) NHS Foundation Trust comprises Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Rosie Hospital in Cambridge. With over 11000 staff and over 1100 beds the priorities of the Trust focus on a quality service which is all about people – patients, staff and partners. Recognised as providing ‘outstanding’ care to our patients and rated ‘Good’ overall by the Care Quality Commissioner, is testament to the skill and dedication of the people who work here. CUH’s values – Together- safe, kind, excellent – are at the heart of patient care, defining the way all staff work and behave. The Trust provides accessible high-quality healthcare for the local people of Cambridge, together with specialist services, dealing with rare or complex conditions for a regional, national and international population.

The Lung Function Unit at Addenbrooke’s Hospital is situated within a state of the art unit on two separate sites and provides a diagnostic service to most specialities within the hospital. As the Senior Clinical Respiratory Physiologist you will be responsible for undertaking simple and specialist tests of lung function to national and international standards. One of the priorities of this post will be leading on the performance of non-complex cardio-pulmonary exercise tests and supporting the analysis of these assessments. You will also deputise for the Lead Physiologist and provide supervision and training support for Clinical Physiologists and other healthcare professionals within the Trust.

Appropriate qualifications include the clinical physiology degree or a practitioner/scientist training programme qualification. However, a science-related undergraduate/masters level degree will be considered. It would be an advantage to have successfully completed ARTP Parts I&II or the ARTP Practitioner Qualification. You should be on a statutory/voluntary register, e.g. HCPC/RCCP. Previous experience within a lung function/respiratory physiology laboratory is essential and some experience of supporting a cardio-pulmonary exercise test would be desirable.

These are exciting times for the lung function unit due to ever expanding services and plans for innovative service delivery. Co-location of Royal Papworth Hospital onto the Cambridge Biomedical Campus will undoubtedly bring future benefits with service integration planned. In addition there will be the opportunity for you to be involved in respiratory research which is continually undertaken within the department. We are currently a clinical excellence site for a number of commercial research trials and we are collaborators in a number of academic studies supported by Medical Research Council, Technology Strategies Board and National Institute for Health Research.

This post is subject to a satisfactory DBS clearance and as a result, you will be required to pay the associated fee of £40.00. This fee will be deducted from your second month’s salary.

This vacancy will close on 2nd November 2020

Interviews are due to be held on 10th November 2020
