Opportunities have arisen to come and work in one of the largest Teaching Hospitals in Scotland and to support the leadership of NHS Grampian Radiology Department. The Radiology Department in NHS Grampian is progressive and thriving, led by a strong and dynamic management team. Recognising the importance of Radiology within NHS Grampian, significant investment has been made to increase our workforce both in Aberdeen and Elgin.

The Radiology department in NHS Grampian can demonstrate excellent team work and strengthening links with other departments in the hospital. Supporting career development is a key component of the leadership of the Radiology Department, as is a flexible working approach. As a Major Trauma Centre there are exciting developments in the scope of work, and there is significant investment in 2019 for both workforce and capital replacement.

There are also opportunities to link to the national and regional transformation agendas and influence these strategic drivers.

Aberdeen Royal Infirmary has strong links to the University which has an outstanding and ongoing pedigree in imaging based research, for example, physically making the first human MRI imaging system which is on display in the Suttie Arts Centre. Research interests are therefore encouraged. The hospital is integral with the University Medical School on one of the largest campuses in Europe. Extensive development is ongoing and over the next few years 2 new Hospitals (Maternity and Oncology) will be completed, an Innovation Hub and additional provision of an enhanced elective care centre.
