Salary: £24,214 – £30,112 per annum pro rata PLUS £2,000 welcome bonus

2020 is going to be an incredible year for NNUH’s Interventional Radiology, don’t just take our word for it – come along to our IRU Open Day on the 21st March 2020. You’ll meet our tight-knit team who strive on working collaboratively, tour our brand new £7 million extension, learn of the exciting training opportunities available to you upon commencement and take that step in the direction of Interventional Radiology, you won’t regret it!

We are looking for Registered Nurses to join our team; Barbara Davies (Radiology Nurse) describes us as a ‘dedicated, supportive & friendly team’. Due to open in spring 2020, the new extension will provide state of the art facilities & importantly allow us to extend the wide variety of interventional procedures performed at NNUH to further help our patients.

Once opened the IRU at NNUH will be the only place in the UK to have 4 suites with state of the art technology, a fully kitted out 16 bed recovery unit and most excitingly there are plans for the unit to become a national training and reference centre.

What is Interventional Radiology?

Interventional Radiology is an expanding field making huge advances in imaging modalities and image-guided techniques. It involves using imaging guidance (fluoroscopy, CTs, ultrasounds, x-rays, and MRIs) to guide tiny catheters and wires throughout the body’s vascular system. Unlike traditional imaging radiology, which is typically used in a diagnostic/screening capacity, interventional radiology delivers therapeutic procedures, often after other diagnostic testing has been performed.

What is the role of a Nurse in Intervention Radiology?

Interventional Radiology Nurses are vital members of the radiology team, providing patient care during diagnostic and minimally invasive, image-guided procedures.

Our teams are fully committed to career development and with the new unit there will be new opportunities for training and supporting registered nurses who want to enhance their skills.

Benefits of joining our new Unit include:

– Great opportunities for training and progression

– Encouragement to develop advanced clinical skills

– Working alongside colleagues from a variety of clinical specialties

– Being at the forefront of delivering new procedures and new technology for patient care.

– Full and part-time opportunities available

We would welcome applications from candidates without previous experience in Interventional Radiology however recent or current experience in an acute Trust is desirable.

We are looking for someone who has the drive and the passion to support the delivery of a high quality, safe and compassionate healthcare service, and to consistently demonstrate NNUH’s ‘PRIDE’ values of People focused, Respect, Dedication, Integrity and Excellence.


Just think where your NNUH career could take you. Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is the 6th largest acute hospital in the UK with new clinics and services being introduced each year, the possibilities are endless. With strong links to the University of East Anglia and Norwich Research Park we want to give our staff every opportunity and the support to achieve their potential. This also allows us to have an imaginative approach to our nursing teams, including Nurse Registrars and Nurse Consultants running their own clinics and Advanced Nurse Practitioners taking a leading role in the care of patients.

Why Norwich?

In Norwich a staggering 77% of people say they love their job. Although less than 2 hours from London and serviced by excellent transport links, Norwich is one of few UK cities that still retain a strong local identity and with that a strong sense of community – people walk down the street and say hello to each other, baristas remember our coffee order, you get to know about interesting local projects.

This strong sense of self along with excellent shopping, eating out, affordable house prices and excellent schooling is why Norwich has been ranked by the Guardian as the best city to work in.
