Consultant Radiologists x2
We are looking for 2 Consultant Radiologists, to join our friendly, diverse and enthusiastic department of 19 Consultants, 1 Associate Specialist grade and 10 Specialist Registrars.
1 post is a new cross sectional post to increase our capacity. The successful applicant should be experienced in general cross sectional radiology - subspecialist interests of GI, ENT and paediatrics are desirable. All other subspecialties will, however, be readily considered, with a strong suitable candidate preferred over a particular interest. The second post is for a Consultant Breast Radiologist, involving both screening and symptomatic work, with some general radiology work also expected. Please see further details in the job description.

All radiological sub-specialties and imaging modalities are provided, with the exception of nuclear medicine. The department has good relationships both internally and with our primary and secondary care colleagues.
The Directorate is part of the Mersey Deanery Radiology Training Programme. On-call commitment will be second on-call approximately 1 in 12 (Band A) with first on-call being a combination of a Specialist Registrars regional reporting service and overnight external outsourcing. Home reporting is an aspiration for the near term. Flexible working with extended days is readily accommodated.
The Department at APH is well-equipped with 3 Multi-slice CT scanners (including one of the first Toshiba Genesis top of the range CTs in the UK,) 2 Phillips 1.5 T MRI scanners, an Angiographic Suite, 2 digital screening rooms and 4 Ultrasound rooms.
