Trust Associate Specialist - Radiology

Job Description

We are a friendly, enthusiastic and dynamic group of 13 Radiologists in the North of England based in Lancaster and in Barrow in Furness and invite you to come and join us.

If you want to achieve a great work/life balance with a professionally satisfying job using new equipment while living in one of the safest, least congested and most beautiful parts of the UK then get in touch and come and check us out.

We live and work in some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK and enjoy affordable houses and fantastic state (i.e. free) schooling but are only 2 ½ hours from London, Glasgow or Edinburgh and an hour from Manchester.

We all have specialist interests but maintain our skills as general radiologists and contribute to the general workload of the department, including CT, US, MRI and plain film reporting.

We have good administrative support, highly integrated voice recognition (Dragon 11 Medical with HSS CRIS) and have an active programme to refresh equipment. (Three new CT scanners, three USS machines and an MR scanner installed in the last three years with a further MR scanner being replaced this summer.)

The University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust has a keen interest and extensive involvement in Medical and Dental Education at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels. We work in partnership with Lancaster Medical School, North Western Deanery and Health Education North West to provide quality education and training which meets the requirements of these regulatory bodies as well as the Trust’s high standards of patient care. UHMBFT provides one of the main NHS settings for students from Lancaster Medical School as we co-ordinate, deliver and quality assure the clinical component of Lancaster Medical Schools MBChB degree programme.

We are a training site for Trainees in Radiology as part of the North West School of Radiology and have close links with Lancaster University. The trust provides the majority of clinical attachments for students at Lancaster Medical School and there are ample opportunities to be involved in teaching if you wish.

We can offer a full time post working four days a week with 1:16 on call. (On call work is outsourced after 10 pm to provide a more palatable and sustainable working pattern.) We are happy to consider alternative working patterns or extended days to deliver more flexible working patterns. Remote reporting is available for on call and we are keen to trial home reporting for elective work.

We are looking for able and motivated Radiologists with excellent communication skills in English who can practice independently. We can be flexible about an applicant’s sub speciality or the exact terms of appointment.
