Consultant Radiologist with an interest in Breast Imaging
Permanent, full-time (10 PAs)
£87,624.00 - £132, 285 dependant on experience
Start date: May 2019.
Situated just 40 minutes flying time from London, with excellent transport links to Europe, the small beautiful Island of Jersey offers a healthy work-life balance. Jersey has the ideal lifestyle and work environment with a warm climate, sandy beaches and excellent amenities including Michelin starred restaurants. An exciting opportunity has arisen for the successful applicant to relocate to the Island.
This is a new post and is in addition to the 6.5 full time equivalents (FTE) Consultant Radiologists. The department consists of 5.5 FTE General Radiologists with subspecialist interests, and a further Radiologist covering the plain film work.
The Mammography Department, is currently staffed by 2 Consultant Radiologists performing 5 sessions. Ideally the successful applicant will minimally have 2 sessions in mammography.
We have a certain amount of flexibility with this post as long as the essential core component in breast radiology is fulfilled. This flexibility arranges from being able to provide a full or part-time breast post with no on-call to a more desirable configuration of a General Radiologist with an interest in breast imaging. We are specifically looking for the following skills in breast imaging and encourage the development of new ones;
• Diagnostic mammography ultrasound and biopsy.
• Stereotactic vacuum assisted biopsy.
• Wire localisation.
• Breast MRI, Contrast Mammography and Tomosynthesis.
• Screening mammography.
The general component of the job could be plain film reporting, general cross-sectional imaging and CT, MRI or ultrasound. Ideally the candidate would be able to perform sufficient general imaging to provide an on-call service and this would be a 1 in 6.5 with internal cover attracting a session in lieu which could be combined with a flexible SPA to create one day per week off site.
We have previously appointed dynamic and enthusiastic Breast Surgeon, Mr Matt Stephenson who provides both mastectomy and a full reconstruction service.
The Mammography Department is currently separated from the main department. There is a reporting room, an Ultrasound and Diagnostic Suite, and a new GE Mammography Suite with Tomosynthesis and vacuum assisted biopsy.
The department is externally inspected and accredited as a Screening Unit and the whole department is currently ISAS accredited. There is a thriving private practice which is an accepted and expected part of the job.
Under Jersey Law, applicants must possess full registration with the General Medical Council and hold a license to practice. The States of Jersey is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of vulnerable people (to include children) and requires the selection process to involve safeguarding measures and an enhanced DBS check.
