Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham


Consultant Radionuclide Radiologist/Nuclear Medicine Physician

We are recognised as one of the leading NHS Foundation Trusts in the UK, supporting around 2.8 million patient appointments every year. The Trust is a regional centre for cancer, trauma, burns & plastics and has the largest solid organ transplantation programme in Europe. We moved into the new Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham in 2010 and in 2018 UHB merged with Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust forming a single organisation which employs over 20,000 staff.

Due to growth in services, particularly PET-CT, applications are invited for a permanent Nuclear Medicine Physician/Consultant Radiologist with special interest in PET-CT/Nuclear Medicine.


The QEHB Imaging Department provides a comprehensive service accepting both regional and supra-regional diagnostic and interventional referrals for a wide range of clinical specialties. This reflects the Trust’s position as a provider of secondary and tertiary medical care. The Trust also supports a large number of clinical trials.


QEHB hosts the regional PET Centre with one of the busiest PET-CT scanners in the country (up to 5,000 scans pa). We have Trust board approval for a new two-scanner PET Centre which is due to open in autumn 2023. The Nuclear Medicine Department also performs a wide range of diagnostic imaging (the majority SPECT-CT), in-patient and out-patient therapies and non-imaging tests, and supports numerous clinical trials. We have 3 SPECT-CT systems in the department including the first 64-slice Veriton in the UK and a new Siemens Intevo Bold camera. We have an on-site radiopharmacy and produce Gallium-68 PET radiopharmaceuticals (PSMA/Dota-peptide) and we are in the process of introducing contrast enhanced PET-CT and SPECT-CT. We have an expanding Lutetium-177 PRRT service and are planning to introduce Lutetium-177 PSMA treatments shortly. The QEHB nuclear medicine department has a staff of 68 including 7 physicists and 26 clinical technologists/radiographers. Reporting is performed by 6 radionuclide radiologists and nuclear cardiologists.


Duties will include general nuclear medicine and PET-CT reporting. Experience in radionuclide therapies will be welcomed but is not essential. Participation in out-of- hours Nuclear Medicine advice and guidance (ARSAC) will be required. There will be an opportunity to develop or maintain a second sub-specialty interest if a candidate wishes.


This post provides an opportunity to gain experience as part of an established and proactive Consultant Radiologist team.


Applicants must be on the GMC specialist register for Radiology/Nuclear Medicine.


Applicants are invited to contact the James Cullis, Head of Nuclear Medicine via email
