Specialist Clinical Physiologist

Hurstwood Park Department of Clinical Neurophysiology is looking to recruit motivated, pro-active Clinical Physiologists to join our busy team providing extensive services to a large population in the South East. We are a progressive, expanding department, primarily based in the regional neurosciences centre in Haywards Heath, with a satellite unit at Southlands Hospital, Shoreham. 

Plans to accommodate neurosciences within a £420 million hospital development in Brighton by the end of 2020 are well underway, which will see a three-fold increase in the size and capacity of the department and will include a number of satellite units.

We provide a comprehensive and responsive investigative neurophysiological service 7 days a week to patients of all ages across a large range of specialities, working particularly closely with Neurology, Neurosurgery and Paediatrics.

Investigations performed include EEG (Routine, Ambulatory, Video Telemetry, Sleep deprived, MLST, Melatonin and Portable), Nerve Conduction Studies (technician led CTS clinics) and a full Evoked Potential service, including ophthalmological studies such as ERG and EOG.  Development of an interoperative monitoring service is currently under consideration.

Candidates will be competent practitioners who are able to meet the criteria of the Band 6 person specification. We are looking for experienced Specialist Clinical Physiologists but are willing to support and develop less qualified staff who are enthusiastic about the services we provide.  The successful applicant will be a dedicated and enthusiastic team player willing to apply themselves to this interesting and often challenging role. 

They will be expected to assist in the training of other healthcare professionals and actively participate in planning and developing services ready for the move to Brighton.  An opportunity will be given to move to Band 7 when the ability to fully perform and report on investigations is demonstrated.
