Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust (RCHT) invites applications for a Consultant Radiologists with a subspecialist interest in Breast imaging to join our cohesive, energetic and supportive team of 26 Consultant Radiologists.

The Mermaid Breast imaging centre is a bespoke dedicated stand alone unit within the acute trust. You would join an existing team of 5 Consultant Breast Radiologists and a Consultant Breast Radiographer. The unit was recently inspected as part of the NHSBSP QA and the visiting team found that this is an effective and safe service.

RCHT is a large teaching hospital, serving a population of 420,000. The Clinical Imaging Directorate has consistently met all diagnostic and treatment targets, delivers a 7 day imaging service and 24/7 on-call diagnostic radiology services with a separate 24/7 interventional radiology on call rota. The Clinical Imaging department was rated Outstanding in a recent (December 2018) CQC inspection.

The diagnostic Radiology Consultant on-call rota is 1:11. RCHT Imaging hosts Radiology Registrars on rotation from the Peninsula Radiology Academy and is actively involved in supporting the Registrar training programme. The Registrars provide seamless first on call cover via the Peninsula Radiology on call (PROC) arrangement with Torbay, Exeter and North Devon.
