An exciting opportunity has arisen to recruit an enthusiastic and innovative specialist nurse within the Cardiology Directorate of the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUHFT). 


The purpose of this post is to be part of the team leading and developing services to facilitate and enhance the arrhythmia patient pathway. This post is based in clinical practice and involves working directly with patients, relatives and clinicians. The Arrhythmia ANP/ASN will provide specialist nurse-led care for patients with arrhythmias within the Oxford University Hospitals (OUH) NHS Foundation Trust, leading and developing practice, running nurse-led outpatient and telephone clinics whilst promoting and improving quality of care for arrhythmia patients. 


The OUHFT is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the country. It provides a wide range of general and specialist clinical services and is a base for nursing and medical education, training and research.  The Trust comprises of four hospitals - the John Radcliffe, Churchill Hospital and the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford and the Horton Hospital in Banbury.


This role will also allow the post holder the opportunity to cross traditional role boundaries and provide technical support during electrophysiology procedures; a nursing role unique to this trust, and one usually held by cardiac physiologists.


The successful applicant will be a Registered Nurse with extensive experience with the field of cardiology. Ideally they will provide evidence of Masters level study and demonstrate post-graduate level working via a continuous development portfolio. A Masters level qualification in history-taking and physical assessment, as well as non-medical prescribing, would be advantageous for the band 7 position.


We will consider interested individuals currently at band 6 (with a minimum of 2 years’ experience) with a strong background in cardiology. This will be in a Band 6 to 7 transitional role once certain competencies have been achieved. Completion of an MSc is required for the job title of Arrhythmia Advanced Nurse Practitioner, and the department will aim to support the successful candidate through this process.


British Heart Rhythm Society (BHRS) accreditation will be an expectation of the role, and the department will encourage and support you through this process.


The ability to initiate, sustain and evaluate change is essential.


This is a full time post of 37.5 hours/week.
