A number of exciting opportunities are available to join the team supporting medical technology in this large central London teaching hospitals Trust, for new entrants to this field.
Medical Physics provides a comprehensive range of scientific and technical services to all of the Trust’s main acute and community sites. The core purpose of the Medical Equipment Management Services (MEMS) Section, in which these posts are based, is provision of repair, calibration and maintenance to a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic medical equipment, to ensure equipment operates effectively and safely with a minimum of downtime.

They will have regular dialogue with clinical and technical staff to identify faults and repair equipment, including working in clinical areas and with manufacturers.
You will need to be a mature, self-motivated individual with an appropriate qualification, some experience in complex equipment maintenance and an understanding of the modern healthcare environment.
Applicants will be expected to have a genuine affinity for the Trust’s values, putting patients first in all they do. High standards of spoken and written communication and interpersonal skills will be required alongside technical and IT skills.
These posts will require continually updated learning as technology evolves so are best suited to applicants able to motivate themselves from an interest in getting involved in the operations and productivity of an acute hospitals trust and having a concern for the quality of support delivered to frontline clinical services.
Successful applicants will also need to be able to occasionally work flexibly outside conventional working hours. Working pattern - 37.5 hrs Mon-Fri 09:00-17:30, Occasional Out-of-Hours.
