Applicants are invited for a full-time Consultant Radiologist post based at the East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust. The post includes Programmed Activities in Breast and General Radiology or Breast Radiology only.

The post has arisen as a consequence of an expansion of the service. The successful candidates will join a team of 20 radiologists to help deliver Diagnostic Imaging Services to the Trust and local commissioners. The candidates are required to have a subspecialty interest in Breast imaging and associated intervention.

There has been considerable recent investment in the department including the development of a dedicated Breast Unit on the New QEII Hospital site. This purpose built unit opened in June 2015 deals with approximately 400 breast cancers annually. There are 3 breast radiologists supporting 3 breast surgeons. There are 7 radiographers trained in mammography and 2 also perform breast ultrasound. A successful vacuum assisted biopsy service has also been introduced.

The department can be flexible in its approach and support a candidate who wishes to maintain experience in general radiology or one who wishes to undertake breast radiology exclusively. The Lister Hospital site is fully accredited for training with 6 SPRs and a Clinical Fellow post.

To arrange an informal visit, please contact Consultant Breast Radiologists, Dr Francesca Peters on 01707 247699 / 07779283411 or Dr Kauser Raza, on 01707 247698

Candidates looking for part time or more flexible working arrangements will also be considered.

Applicants should be on the Specialist Register or be within six months of obtaining CCT at the time of interview.
