We have a Band 5 vacancy in our QEQM Cardiac Catheter Lab, and we are looking for a very special nurse! You will be keen to learn new skills and have an interest in acute cardiac nursing. In return, we will train you to care for cardiac patients and teach you the skills for our lab procedures. This will include working as a scrub nurse and joining our team that treats patients from across the whole of Kent who are having an acute heart attack!

The role is based at QEQM, but will require dual site working at our lab at William Harvey Hospital in Ashford. Here in Margate, our lab manages a fascinating and really worthwhile caseload. Procedures include the diagnosis of coronary artery disease, implantation of pacemakers and other complex devices, as well as related procedures, such as electrophysiology and cardiac monitor implantation. Our nominal working day is 8-6, but some flexibility is essential to meet the needs of our patients. Any extra time accrued will be noted and appropriately compensated.

But what exactly is a Cath lab? Well, it’s not really a Laboratory in the normal sense. (Thank our American friends for that name!) Think more of an endovascular and minor surgery operating theatre specialising in cardiac cases and you would be correct.

Today, the team at East Kent Hospitals will care for more than 2,000 people. Most of these people and their loved ones will be at a significant moment in their lives – an emergency situation, a diagnosis, a new life, a last chance to say goodbye, or a new chance to learn or regain skills.

That’s why if you are passionate about people, you’re the perfect fit for us, whether you are a health professional or someone who can bring your valuable skills ‘behind the scenes’.

Our vision is ‘great healthcare from great people’ – if you are great at what you do and want to work in an environment where you can give your best, come and be part of us!
