An exciting opportunity has arisen for a whole time equivalent Consultant Nuclear Medicine Physician or Radionuclide Radiologist to join our team of consultants. This post is a replacement for the previous post holder and is based at Denmark Hill. The post holder will support the ever increasing clinical demands for molecular imaging at King's College Hospital Trust and must be able to independently report a range of PET-CT studies.

Major cancer services for hepatobiliary, pancreatic, haemato-oncology, lung, breast, colorectal and neurological malignancy are based in King’s serving both the local SE London as part of the Guys, King’s and St. Thomas’ Cancer service, Kent and other local and national networks.  King’s is a leading national and international centre for the diagnosis and treatment of blood cancers. We are home to the centralised bone marrow transplant service for King’s and Guy's and St Thomas's NHS Foundation Trusts, one of the largest in Europe. King’s College Hospital provides one of the largest comprehensive adult and paediatric hepatobiliary and pancreatic services in Europe. The adult and paediatric liver transplantation, hepatology and hepatobiliary surgery programmes have a national and international referral base.

It is an exciting time to join Nuclear Medicine & PET-CT at King's, as the department grows both its diagnostic and therapeutic services. The department is one of only two NHS Trusts in London to provide both SIRT and Lutathera therapies and candidates with an interest in radionuclide therapies are welcomed. The department has recently entered a unique partnership with Alliance Medical to provide PET-CT imaging for South East London and the postholder will be responsible for reporting a wide range of PET-CTs performed both at King’s and at Queen Mary Hospital in Sidcup as well as general nuclear medicine scans performed at Princess Royal University Hospital.

The Denmark Hill department comprises a Siemens Symbia SPECT–CT (16 slice); a Phillips Skylight dual-headed gamma camera (due to be replaced in 2020 with a second SPECT-CT) and a GE Discovery PET-CT scanner (128 slice) and a brand new GE Prodigy DEXA scanner. The Princess Royal nuclear medicine department has a GE Hawkeye SPECT-CT (due for replacement in 2020).

We take a flexible approach to job plans and job shares or part-time arrangements will be considered.
