Nursing Staff

There is a Lead Nurse for Endoscopy and each site is managed on a day to day basis by a Senior Sister. They are supported by a team of Band 6 sisters, Registered nurses, Health care Assistants & Technicians. As Endoscopy is a specialised area we also have a Practice development Sister covering both sites and regular bank staff  to support additional lists, study and annual leave.

You will see staff within the unit wearing different types of uniforms. Set out below is the Trust uniform guide for identification.

Sister: - Navy blue dress / tunic / trousers with white piping.

Specialist Nurses:- Navy blue dress / tunic / trousers with blue piping

Staff Nurse: - Blue and white striped dress / tunic with white piping and navy trousers.

Male Staff Nurse: - White tunic with striped epaulets and navy trousers.

Nursing Auxiliaries: - Green striped dress / tunic and navy trousers.

Domestics staff: - Green tunic and navy trousers.

Due to the nature of the work carried out in the unit you will meet members of staff both medical and nursing wearing ‘theatre blues’. This consists of a pale blue tunic and trousers. All staff can be identified by their name badges.

Clerical Staff

There is an administrative team based each unit and this is led by Nicky White (the Waiting List Manager)  who is based at Beacon House with the Endoscopy booking team. The team will work very hard to ensure that you have an appointment date and time that is suitable for you. They will try to answer any queries you may have about your appointment and ensure you have the correct information and preparatory materials that you require.
