University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire is located in the West Midlands and is home to one of the largest teaching hospitals in England. Our mission to Care, Achieve and Innovate is demonstrated in our reputation for innovation, teaching and research and high quality patient care. University Hospital in Coventry is one of the most modern healthcare facilities in Western Europe with £200 million of new medical and research equipment and a hospital that is at the forefront of digital imaging and technology.

We provide general acute hospital services to approximately 500,000 people from Coventry and Rugby and specialist hospital services to over one million people from Coventry, Warwickshire and beyond. The Trust has a revenue budget of approximately £473 million, we employ 5,639 staff, manage 1,380 beds and 32 operating theatres.

The Trust is made up of the following hospitals:
University Hospital Coventry 
Hospital of St Cross – Rugby 

Come and join our exciting dynamic team. Due to a redevelopment of the department our service will be expanding and evolving to provide for the increased demand for interventional radiological procedures. This will provide you with a highly innovative and interesting working environment.

As a radiology nurse you will gain the skills to scrub for procedures and to administer conscious sedation, as well as assessing and implementing care to the acutely unwell within the department. For experienced Radiology Nurses there will be future opportunities to consolidate their skills with roles such as delegated consent, nurse prescribing and nurse-led discharge.

You will gain a wealth of knowledge and skills in looking after patients having both vascular and non-vascular interventional procedures, which include both elective patients and emergencies. You will receive full support by our experienced nurses who are from a variety of clinical backgrounds to gain these skills and feel part of the team.

We provide placements for nursing and radiography students, so there is scope for practising as a nurse mentor.

The department offers a variety of shifts, with a rotational commitment to being on an on-call rota overnight and weekends.


Recruiting to Values

To ensure that we provide world-class patient care, we recruit people that can demonstrate the Trust’s Values and Behaviours in their everyday life. Therefore, if you are shortlisted, you will be undertaking a Values Based Interview/Assessment, which explores not only what you do but how and why you do it.

Before applying, we encourage you to review the Trust’s Values and Behaviours Framework and Values Based Recruitment Factsheet which can be accessed on the right side of this page under the job description.

The Supporting Information section in your application should therefore
reflect your understanding of the Trust’s Values and associated behaviours. You will be expected to provide us with examples from work experience and/or personal life which demonstrate these values through your behaviour
