The Department

We would like to welcome you to join our friendly, supportive, forward thinking team of 21 existing Consultants (17 WTE). We are looking forward to exciting changes with increasing investment in Radiology with recent replacement of all 3 MRI scanners, a fourth CT scanner installed in 2019 and replacement of all the plain film Xray rooms, fluoroscopy units & both Catheter labs in 2020. This is in response to the Future Fit decision concerning the Counties care provision.

The department undertakes over 320,000 investigations each year split near equally over both hospital sites, providing a comprehensive imaging service for our patients. There is good office space and we have recently upgraded to a new PACS (Agfa Enterprise imaging).

Our Hospitals

Our Hospitals are located in Shrewsbury and Telford and are brimming with exemplary teams of hardworking individuals.

It is a particularly exciting time to join the Trust as we have recently started working collaboratively with the Virginia Mason Hospital in Seattle. We are one of only 5 UK hospitals to receive this support, from what is regarded as the safest hospital in the world.  It poses a unique opportunity to make a difference and we hope you will want to be a part of our journey. The Trust is currently undergoing a sustainability and transformation programme to ensure long term sustainability of all services.

Shropshire

Shropshire is a beautiful county located between the West Midlands and North Wales. Whilst rural and home to the Shropshire Hills it is anything but sleepy. The county is bustling with idyllic towns including Shrewsbury, Oswestry, Bridgnorth and Ludlow, with plenty to do regardless of your interests. More information can again be found under further links.
