The cardio-respiratory investigations (CRI) unit is a busy diagnostics department in a modern and spacious setting within Tameside General Hospital. The service is currently undergoing a transformation and we are looking for a motivated and experienced echocardiographer to be a part of the exciting developments ahead.
The department performs approximately 8,000 transthoracic echocardiograms (TTE) per year plus transoesophageal (TOE), contrast echo service and an evolving physiologist-lead stress echo service. In line with our Trust’s ‘integrated’ status community-based diagnostic services are also currently under development.
Cardiac physiology degree or equivalent, full BSE accreditation and post accreditation experience is essential for this post. Competency within other cardio-respiratory modalities would be a distinct advantage.
Ongoing CPD is encouraged and development of new and existing skills will be supported whenever possible.
*Applications from non-BSE accredited physiologists will be considered for the post (on an AFC band 6 basis) if they fulfil the following criteria; arealreadycollecting for their BSE log book (with evidence)andcurrently perform TTE independently (with report being checked by BSE accredited echocardiographer).
