Our team works closely together to care for our patients.
Our theatre team has:
- Operating department practitioners
- Assistant theatre practitioners
- Clinical support workers
Our theatre staff are supported by a management team, administration team and other support services within the hospital such as radiography, pathology and estates.
We have strong links with the University of Hertfordshire and the University of Bedfordshire to help support our staff’s personal development. Our qualified theatre staff who have diplomas and degrees are encouraged and supported in taking post registration qualifications.
Support staff are encouraged to take NVQ qualifications in Peri-operative care and health care. We are also currently working on a foundation degree for our assistant practitioners.
As with many large hospitals our theatre department has a clear career structure. We support our staff who want to develop their career within our department. Find out more about a carrer in the NHS:
