Lead Nurse Colposcopist – Band 8a

Hours: Full time (37.5 hours a week) Part time hours considered

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Nurse Colposcopist to jointly lead and develop a team of specialist nurses alongside our existing Lead Nurse Colposcopist at King’s College Hospital.

The colposcopy department at King’s provides approximately 5,000 colposcopy appointments per year to local women with diverse healthcare needs.

The role of Lead Nurse Colposcopist is fundamental to both the operational management and the strategic development of the service. You will have BSCCP accreditation and be able to provide nurse led colposcopy clinics and the full range of colposcopic assessment and treatments to women accessing the service.

You must have expert knowledge and skills in Women’s Health, alongside the ability to lead a team of nurses and contribute positively to the larger multidisciplinary team.

As Lead Nurse Colposcopist, you will have both the drive and the opportunity to be involved in clinical audit and user involvement initiatives, and to lead on the development of clinical strategies and protocols to enhance the continuity and standard of care.

There will be opportunities for you to develop your own skills and expertise and also to be influential in developing the services and nursing roles within Women’s Health.

We offer educational opportunities from in house study courses to post graduate education through Kings College London.
