06 August 2020

DDRC Healthcare is a charity providing hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy, training and research, in Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine and associated fields. This post is based at the Hyperbaric Medical Centre in Plymouth. We provide high quality care for patients referred for elective and emergency HBO for conditions recognised as benefiting from HBO such as decompression illness (DCI), tissue damage secondary to radiotherapy and diabetic ulcers.

This is an opportunity to do something which is both interesting and rewarding.

Post-holders will join as a ‘bank staff’ member of the Chamber Team, providing routine and emergency HBO therapy to patients on an ‘as and when’ basis, as requested by the DDRC Healthcare Chamber Supervisor. The hours available will be irregular. The Centre operates from Monday to Friday, 08.30 to 17.00, and once post-holders are suitably trained and experienced they will be expected to join our on-call rota which operates 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

Chamber Team members operate the chambers and support people using them. Applicants might be people with an interest in healthcare, diving or from many other backgrounds.

You will be required to achieve in-date accreditation to DDRC Healthcare standards. DDRC Healthcare staff will carry out the relevant training and assessment required. Bank staff with no relevant qualifications will be offered an initial period of training, at the charity’s expense.

Following training, it is expected that the post-holders will join our on-call rota which operates outside of normal working hours, 24 hours per day.

Applicants must either have, or be willing to undertake, an HSE diving medical to ensure they are fit to ‘dive’ and carry out all the necessary duties. You must also be able to get to the Hyperbaric Medical Centre within 40 minutes, when on call.
