This new post reflects the ever-increasing demand for cross-sectional imaging in a friendly and expanding radiology department within a hospital rated by the CQC as Good, and Outstanding for caring. As the dominant provider of diagnostic imaging in the county we work closely with colleagues in surrounding Trusts to deliver services to a catchment of over 544,000.

Main duties of the job

An interest in musculoskeletal, thoracic, head & neck, or neuroradiology is desirable, but we will happily consider candidates with other subspecialty interests. You'll work in a department with 3 MRI scanners, 3 CT scanners, 4 Ultrasound bays, as well as benefiting from onsite static PETCT scanner and purpose-built oncology centre.

As well as this, we work in partnership with Rutherford Diagnostic Imaging Centre to provide further services to our patients. Additionally, a plan to merge with Yeovil District Hospital has been proposed and is underway.

About the Trust

Somerset NHS Foundation Trust is the first NHS trust on the English mainland to provide community, mental health, and acute hospital services. We work with health and social care partners in Somerset to ensure that we deliver outstanding services that meet the needs of our population.

Our trust was formed on 1 April 2020 when Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust merged. We provide community and mental health services across the whole of Somerset and acute hospital services in the north, west and centre of the county and beyond.

As well as this, we work in partnership with Rutherford Diagnostic Imaging Centre to provide further services to our patients. Additionally, a plan to merge with Yeovil District Hospital has been proposed and is underway.

Location

Taunton is a beautiful part of the country, with all the benefits of a modern county town, yet only minutes away from spectacular areas of outstanding natural beauty, beautiful beaches, and dramatic coastline. The town has excellent schools, and benefits from useful road, rail, and air links. The cities of Bristol and Exeter are less than an hour away. Joining the 4000 strong team at Musgrove will offer you a stimulating and professional working environment in which to develop, challenge and further your career.

Job responsibilities

We take a flexible approach to ensure we get the best from our Consultants, and are happy to negotiate on job plans, and discuss part time arrangements.
