We are delighted to invite applications for a Consultant Breast Radiologist to join an existing team of nine Consultant Breast Radiologists at University Hospitals of Leicester.

This is a substantive post covering both the screening and symptomatic pathways. The service strives to provide the highest standards of healthcare for our patients from our purpose-built Breast Care Centre at Glenfield Hospital. As part of an established multi-disciplinary team 950 cancers were diagnosed in 2016.

Our breast screening programme is the largest in the East Midlands and one of the largest in England. Our Breast Screening population is 160,000. In addition to the screening activity our symptomatic and surveillance demand is approximately 17,000 per year. We are a centre that is actively involved in clinical trials and have successfully secured Tomosynthesis and Contrast Enhanced Mammography equipment. There is also the opportunity to practice a wide range of diagnostic and interventional procedures including breast MRI (screening and symptomatic) and increasing use of vacuum assisted biopsy.

Successful candidates will be expected to participate in the on-call rota covering acute radiology as well as undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and clinical governance/audit.

We are looking for people that live our values to help us make a difference to the thousands of patients who come to us for treatment every year. You will need to be motivated, passionate, and able to work as part of a team. Working for University Hospitals of Leicester (UHL) will be a challenging, ever-changing and a rewarding experience.

Those interested are strongly recommended to contact the service and arrange a visit.
