As such we have a firm commitment to strengthening the diversity of our workforce, and therefore welcome and encourage applications from likeminded people who can support our ambition to become effortlessly inclusive. We are particularly keen to hear from protected groups – including BAME, LGBT+ and people with a disability.

Job overview

We are looking for a General Radiologist with a specialist interest – sub specialty is flexible to fit in with the needs of the Trust and the applicant’s interests.

We invite you to join a team of 16 Radiologists providing diagnostic Imaging and Interventional Service for North Lancashire and South Cumbria. We contribute to the  workload of the department, including CT, US, MRI and plain film reporting and participate in the on call rota (1:16). We outsource on call work from 8 pm (weekdays) and 5 pm (weekend and Bank holidays) to provide a more palatable and sustainable working pattern.

We have good admin support, highly integrated voice recognition (Dragon 11 Medical with HSS CRIS) and an active programme to refresh equipment. (3 new CT scanners, 3 new MR scanners and 16 new USS machines in the last 4 years). The PACS has been upgraded to a state of the art SECTRA system . A new SPECT CT system given approval at FGH with plans for a similar replacement in nuclear medicine at RLI

Main duties of the job

Whilst remaining general Radiologists, we all sub-specialise to a greater or lesser degree and report a share of general work whilst also working collaboratively to cover specific tumour work and other sub-specialties across the whole trust from our individual bases using a single PACS system. A shared contribution to the general work of the department would be expected from the successful applicant.
