Theatre Technicians are a vital part of the perioperative team. They work closely with the doctors and nurses in the operating theatre and are responsible for the patient’s safety and comfort while they are on the operating table, as well as setting up and monitoring the technology needed to support the surgeon.

Theatre Technician roles are physical and fast paced, most technicians in Victorian hospitals work a four day week of 10-hour shifts, with four weeks holiday a year.
