The cardiology department at Milton Keynes University Hospital are looking for dynamic, motivated physiologists to help us take cardiac services in Milton Keynes to the next level. We are looking to expand and modernise cardiology service delivery for the rapidly expanding local population and looking in to ways we can support home working. We encourage applications from physiologists with an interest in devices, invasive cardiac procedures and/or echocardiography.


The cardiology department provides full diagnostic imaging, including echocardiography, TOE, contrast enhanced pharmacological and exercise stress echo, and advanced echo including 3D strain analysis with McKesson and Tom Tec reporting stations and Philips and Toshiba scanners. Cardiac CT Angiography services have also been established for the last 6 years. We carry out physiologist-led services in echocardiography, including the valve clinic, and to implement new services, such as physiologist-led exercise stress echocardiography and TOE.


We welcome applications from senior device physiologists who wish to assist in expanding services and training the next generation of physiologists.   Our device lead Cardiologist works cross-site in MKUH and Oxford and implants complex devices in the John Radcliffe Hospital. Junior physiologists interested in achieving BHRS, EHRA or IBHRE accreditation in devices can take advantage of training opportunities on both sites.  We currently have a nurse-led ILR implantation service, and interested physiologists could be trained in ILR implantation to contribute to this service.

Please note that this post is subject to an initial probationary period on six months, extendable up to a period of 12 months. A DBS check may be required for new employees. MKUH promotes an inclusive workforce and are committed to equal opportunities, we proactively welcome applications from underrepresented groups in our community. Thank you for your interest in our Hospital.
