Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust invites applicants to apply for Consultant in Nuclear medicine posts. We are looking for highly motivated and enthusiastic individual who is keen to develop and nurture the Nuclear Medicine Services across both the Queen Elizabeth Woolwich and University hospital Lewisham sites.

The posts is full time, attracting 10 programmed activities and consideration will be given to a part time appointment for any applicant unable or not wishing to work full time.

The appointee will work closely with an existing radiologist holding the ARSAC licence to supervise and report a wide range of general nuclear medicine scans on both sites with routine use of SPECT CT. The ability to perform cardiac stressing, sentinel node localisation for breast cancer and therapy for benign thyroid disease would also be helpful. The post holder will also work closely with the Nuclear medicine team to regularly review and update protocols and practices in line with best practice and will partner with the existing radiologist in taking the service forward, making it robust and future-proof.

The post holder would preferably be eligible for an ARSAC licence in line with the new ARSAC guidance.

Although PET CT is not available in the Trust we are keen to support the applicant pursuing PET CT reporting if so desired, and we have had an encouraging response in the past from regional PET CT centres. LGT would be happy to accommodate sessions or liaise on the post holder’s behalf in this matter.

LGT NHS Trust aims to be the hospital of choice for patients and an employer of choice for staff. In order to improve all aspects of patient experience, we rely upon having a highly skilled, motivated, diverse, productive and patient focused workforce. Our staff are key to the current and future development of our services and have in recent times demonstrated their deep commitment to the trust and the community we serve. By joining us now, you can play a pivotal role in shaping a new organisation that continues to put patient care first and one that takes great pride in our place at the heart of the local community.

The Trust employs more than 6000 staff, providing healthcare throughout Lewisham and Greenwich, caring for a combined population of over 5000,000. Lewisham is a teaching hospital of the Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ School of Medicine with a first class reputation for undergraduate and postgraduate training.
