Substantive Consultant in Gastrointestinal and General Radiology
The need for an additional consultant radiologist has arisen due to increases in activity across all imaging modalities. In addition one of the current substantive GI radiologists is intending to reduce their hours in the near future which has provided some subspecialist sessions in lower GI radiology and bariatric imaging. This therefore provides a good opportunity for a degree of training should there be some areas of subspecialist work the successful candidate is less experienced in.
The post holder will work closely with colorectal and gastroenterology colleagues as well as bariatric services. The latter represents one of the largest units in the UK and this post represents an exciting opportunity to contribute to this increasingly important field. Gastroenterology and hepatology departments have expanded rapidly in recent years, and inflammatory bowel disease and chronic liver disease represent an increasing amount of the radiology workload. The appointee will share responsibility for presenting the radiology component of the following meetings with one other consultant radiologist: weekly colorectal and upper GI multidisciplinary meetings and bimonthly inflammatory bowel, bariatric and fistula meetings.
Homerton Hospital is an acute modern hospital near to the Olympic park in East London with good transport links via the overground to Stratford (10 mins links to Jubilee and Central lines), Highbury and Islington (8 mins links to Victoria line) and Stratford International (high speed links to Kent). You would be joining a team of 11 other consultant radiologists to report CT/MR, x-rays and undertake ultrasound examinations. The successful applicant would be expected to participate in the on call rota (1 in 12). Overnight (8pm to 8am) CT reporting is outsourced.
The department has 2 MR scanners, 1.5 Tesla MR scanner (GE MR450) and 3 Tesla MRI (GE750W) and a CT Toshiba Aquilion Prime. In the main department the ultrasound machines are GE E9 scanners.
Applicants must have, or be within 6 months of completing CCST or have an equivalent radiology qualification with GMC registration. This post is for 10 PA, although an additional PA may be available depending upon the skills of the applicant. Part time applications would be considered.
