Ian Pinnell

Healthcare Science Associate in Cardiac Physiology

specialise in Cardiac Rhythm Management Remote Monitoring, managing several databases ensuring patient schedules for their transmissions are correct, triaging ECG traces for physiologists & consultants and being the first point of contact for patients who are on Remote Monitoring within the department.

I also undertake electrocardiograms, fit ambulatory monitors and work within Nuclear Cardiology, processing scan images and assisting with Exercise Treadmill Tests.

believe technology and remote monitoring are the future of the NHS and will benefit patients long term, saving trips to hospital and give patients greater peace of mind. 

Outside of healthcare, you’ll find me getting creative with a national charity as their Communications Executive and occasionally hear me on the radio.

About

My work in healthcare, media and more.

After graduating from University with a 2:1 BA Honours Degree in Radio Production, I looked for a job that would earn me some money whilst looking for work in radio. 

That job was working within a clinic prep department in the NHS, preparing notes for outpatient appointments. Fast forward nearly eight years later, having been an Outpatient Administrator & Supervisor within the admin side of the NHS to going clinical with the role of Healthcare Science Assistant (HSA), within Cardiac Physiology.

From performing electrocardiograms to taking blood pressures and fitting ambulatory monitors, I’ve done it all as an HSA. Now, I specialise in Cardiac Rhythm Management and work as the department’s Remote Monitoring Assistant.

Whilst my day job is healthcare focused, I also volunteer for two charities, one that delivers entertainment to patients and another that supports hospital, health and wellbeing broadcasters across the UK.

I’ve run my own business producing radio jingles, have voiced a handful of radio commercials and produced a variety of audio in my time, but the greatest satisfaction is playing a small part in a patients pathway in the NHS.

Charity Work

Thirteen years of volunteering, broadcast & design.

I’ve been volunteering for Radio Cherwell, Oxford’s Hospital Radio station since 2006, hosting a variety of programmes, attending various public addresses across Oxfordshire and hosting a number of Outside Broadcasts at the hospitals we serve. I spent seven years hosting the flagship children’s show, The Weekend for Everything Show. The radio station plays a pivotal role in bringing smiles to patients across the wards and has become a strong link between patients, staff and visitors to the hospital trust it serves. 

I also volunteer on a national level with the Hospital Broadcasting Association, a charity I’ve been involved with since 2015. My tenure began as the Home Counties Regional Rep, looking after 12 stations in the region. During a restructure, I became editor of the organisations On-Air magazine, a role I still hold today, alongside being a Trustee and the organisations Communications Executive.

I am experienced in using the Adobe Creative Cloud suite of programmes, including Photoshop, InDesign, Audition and Illustrator.
