An exciting opportunity has arisen at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS) as the medical assistant and Phlebotomy service are looking to expand their team by recruiting a Phlebotomist.

ABOUT THE TEAM

The AMU is a 54 bedded unit with its own discharge lounge. There are a number of different areas within AMU, from a seven bedded high observation area, to dedicated male and female areas with private side rooms. This is a busy, fast paced area aiming for a turnaround time of up to 72 hours before patients are discharged or moved to a specialist medical ward.

You will work over a wide variety of settings and clinical areas and as such will need to be an effective communicator. You will need to be flexible and cover a full range of shifts as our team provides 24 hour service to the division.

WHAT YOU’LL DO

A phlebotomist’s role is to provide a high quality phlebotomy and cannulation service that offers the best possible standards of patient care to inpatients and any other area requiring venesection/cannulation services. You will assist in the provision of individualised care, under the supervision of a qualified nurse and others in the health care professional team.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR

We are looking to recruit self-motivated, dynamic people with a passion for taking blood samples while delivering high quality patient care. With a keen eye for attention to detail and the ability to prioritise your own workload, you will be a keen learner that embraces change whilst maintaining high standards.

We believe you deserve the best possible surroundings in which to do your job and we want to support you in doing your job to the best of your ability.               

As a Trust, we support flexible working and will consider requests taking into account the needs of the service. You’ll have an opportunity to discuss this at interview. Our LiveWell and inspire programme offers opportunities, support and advice, including smoking cessation services, exercise and activity classes, and support for mental health.

UHS employees are able to access a huge range of NHS discounts, are entitled to a minimum of 35 days paid holiday (pro rata) on appointment, can access on-site nursery facilities (subject to availability), and we offer a generous pension scheme.
