King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust part of King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with a turnover of nearly £1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 11,500 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London.
The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) site in Camberwell and the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in Bromley.
Kings College NHS Foundation Trust is seeking consultant radiologists to join its expanding and forward thinking Medical Imaging Department based at the Princess Royal University Hospital. The job would be mainly a general radiology post with subspecialist interest. Gastrointestinal, head and neck & paediatrics interest would be preferable but not essential. The successful candidate will join a flexible and enthusiastic team of radiologists. There is established role extension within the department with training taking place for reporting radiographers, and the post holder will be actively involved in supporting this initiative.
The post is for 10 PAs per week, which includes 1.5 PAs for SPA time. Less than full time work is welcomed. You must be fully registered with the GMC/GDC and hold Licence to Practice and be on the Specialist Register, or within six months of attaining your CCT or equivalent at interview stage. On call commitment will be 1:10 with this post, and CT scans are outsourced to a teleradiology company from 5:00 pm – 8 am week days and throughout the weekend. Weekend on calls involves 3 hours onsite DCC each day to predominantly cover acute ultrasound work.
The Trust has a strong and committed leadership team which is driving the organisation’s turnaround and has been recognised as one of the fastest in the country. Committed to delivering the highest quality of patient care, investment in Radiology services in the form of talented professionals is coupled with continued strong growth and service development both as a stand-alone service and through collaborative partnership with the Denmark Hill site and via the King Health Partnership. We are proud of the high quality patient care we deliver in which our community has confidence and are committed to valuing all of our staff as individuals and helping each to realise their full potential. Although based at the Princess Royal Hospital site there are plenty of opportunities for joint working across the Denmark Hill and PRUH sites.
