In 2012, the Radiology Department underwent a 23 million pound total redevelopment to accommodate the 200,000 plus examinations performed each year. Another multimillion pound redevelopment of the A&E department and A&E X-ray services, including an A&E CT scanner, has begun and is expected to complete in the summer of 2017. The department actively encourages continued professional development (CPD) and opportunities are available for further training and development.

There is also a radiographer led nerve root injection list. There are also 3 MRI scanners. The MRI Unit performs a wide range of examinations for all the above specialities, notably for Hepato-biliary, Gastroenterology and Renal Medicine.

The Interventional Radiology and Cardiology department is comprised of 5 dedicated interventional labs. There is a comprehensive interventional service for all specialties within the trust including cardiac, renal, HPB, oncology and vascular. An Artis Zeego multi axis floor mounted angiography unit is located within theatres to provide imaging for complex endovascular cases.

The department actively encourages continued professional development (CPD) and opportunities are available for further training and development.

The post includes a rotation through CT, Interventional Radiology and Cardiology Unit, A+E, Mobiles and Theatres and General Radiography. Opportunities may become available to also rotate through MRI.
