The Vascular Team at Salisbury Foundation Trust are looking for an accredited or nearly accredited Clinical Vascular Scientist/Sonographer to join our friendly unit which presently consists of five Vascular sonographers, supported by a team of Vascular Specialist Nurses, Healthcare Support Workers and administrative staff. The successful candidate will be highly motivated, an excellent team player and committed to the delivery of high quality patient care. Our Vascular Unit is a purpose built, air conditioned, 9 roomed department which supports multidisciplinary working and one stop clinics. We have three main ultrasound machines within the department (1 Philips EPIQ 5G and 2 Phillips EPIQ 7G), plus two portable Phillips CX50’s for use on the wards. We carry out a wide range of vascular investigations including carotid, aorta, upper and lower limb arterial and venous assessments, graft surveillance, imaging of endovascular aneurysm repair and DVT assessments. We also support a well-established outpatient EVLT service which runs from the Vascular Unit and we have close links to the AAA screening programme for Dorset & Wiltshire.

We are happy to consider applicants with less experience or who are currently working towards SVT accreditation or have recently finished/nearly finished the STP training programme, but appointment in this case may be at a lower banding. The post is for 37.5 hours per week (full-time) but part-time hours may be considered for the right applicant. The role will also include some weekend/bank holiday working on a rota basis, usually about 3-4 times a year. Salisbury is situated in a beautiful part of the country, surrounded by the rolling green fields of Wiltshire, offering a number of outdoor pursuits, a vibrant community spirit, and an excellent quality of life. It has a number of outstanding local schools (including two grammar schools) and excellent transport links to London via train and good road networks to a huge number of the UK’s best loved attractions.

Interviews are due to be held on Tuesday 26th January 2021.
