An exciting opportunity has arisen to appoint 2x dynamic, motivated Band 7 Advanced Cardiac Physiologists within Cardiothoracic Services at C&V UHB. We are looking to expand and modernise cardiology service delivery for the rapidly expanding local population.

These are permanent full-time posts that will complement the present team of 14 ‘in-house’ Cardiac Physiologists delivering tertiary cardiac services of the highest standard to a population of 1.3 million people.

This post provides an exciting opportunity for enthusiastic and experienced highly specialised cardiac physiologist to join a motivated, cohesive, friendly, supportive and progressive echocardiography service at a leading tertiary centre, to support the delivery of high-quality echocardiography and service development.

These posts have been developed as part of an expansion of the ACHD service commissioned by the Welsh Health Specialist Services Committee (WHSSC). This service works on a hub and spoke model with the Cardiff and Vale UHB acting as the hub with identified links into Bristol and outreaching to each Health Board across South Wales.

The posts are designed to offer candidates the opportunity to undertake sub-specialty interests such as Adult, Paediatric, Adult Congenital and fetal echocardiography.

You will have the opportunity to be part of a successful Physiologist led valve clinic with over 1200 patients enrolled in the service, participate in echo guided optimisation clinics, physiology led simple ACHD lesion clinics, Post TAVI clinics and physiologist led stress echo clinics. We play an active role in the training and education of all medical staff performing echocardiography as well as routine audit and quality assurance projects.

In addition to their fundamental role in performing, reporting and supervising echocardiograms, successful applicants will be given dedicated time and support to undertake additional duties/specialist activities. These could include one or more of the following:

  • Quality Assurance/Improvement
  • Advanced Echocardiography (e.g. Stress Echocardiography)
  • Teaching & Training
  • Advanced Practice in Structural Heart Disease (incl. TAVI)”  

We would welcome an application from anyone who is qualified and has a particular interest in any of these fields   

To apply for this post, you must have full BSE accreditation, and a degree in Clinical Physiology or equivalent. You should be on or be eligible to join the RCCP or HCPC register.

The successful applicant will be expected to work across both University Hospital of Wales and University Hospital Llandough sites.

It lies within easy reach of the Brecon Beacons National Park and the beautiful coastlines of South and West Wales. Cardiff enjoys all the benefits you would expect of a modern capital city and has excellent road, rail and air links with the rest of the United Kingdom.
