This post is for an Adult Consultant Cardiologist with an interest in Imaging. Candidates with another sub-speciality interest are encouraged to apply. The principal role of the post is to provide subspecialty skills in cardiac Imaging with a focus on echocardiography and transoesophageal echocardiography. Expertise in stress imaging is preferred. The post-holder would be expected to participate in the supervision of the trusts' dedicated 'valve clinic', comprising a contemporary multidisciplinary one-stop imaging and clinical assessment.

The successful candidate would be expected to provide leadership for the echo department. Experience and accreditation in an additional modality of imaging is welcomed, with agreements in place to practice cMRI in a nearby trust and / or cardiac CT locally. Where appropriate, sessional commitments in other centres can be considered reflecting sub-speciality interest where these align with service development and delivery.
