An opportunity has arisen for a Consultant Radiologist to join a team of 50 radiologists to provide specialist cardiothoracic imaging in addition to general radiology services. Additional subspecialty interests would also be welcomed, particularly PET-CT. This is a replacement post due to retirement.

Diagnostic imaging of cardiothoracic patients are a significant aspect of specialist radiological work in Plymouth. The team provide comprehensive diagnostic radiology services to the Plymouth region, and tertiary imaging services for complex respiratory disease, lung reduction surgery, and tertiary cardiothoracic surgery.

UHP has the longest established cardiac CT service in the UK and remains one of the busiest and most demanding, delivering a service to both patients with stable and acute chest pain as well as those with established CAD and patients with GUCH. The Trust has 3 cardiac enabled scanners including one state-of-the-art scanner installed in 2021 which does most of the cardiac scans. There is an established track record of research and innovation in the department.

Main duties of the job

The post is designed to share responsibility for provision of a comprehensive diagnostic cardiothoracic radiology service including provision of a range of cancer and non-cancer MDTs (including complex respiratory meetings, CICU lung reduction surgery, incidental findings from lung cancer screening), CT guided biopsies, 2WW lung cancer pathway reporting, specialist vetting and reporting with the existing team of specialist radiology consultants. All radiology consultants are actively involved in teaching for the Peninsula Medical School and Peninsula Radiology Training Program. The successful applicant will share an office with other consultant colleague's which at present is variable due to covid guidelines and will share a secretary with the current team of radiologists.

The post-holder will be provided with a PC and PACS workstation, with the option to locate one of these off-site to facilitate home working. If the applicant wishes to work primarily remotely, this can be discussed.

The post holder will be required to comply with all Trust Policies notably in relation to job planning, appraisal and leave taking in line with Departmental and Trust objectives. The programs shown are for illustrative purposes and could be subject to modification, in agreement with the post holder and the Imaging Service Line Clinical Director.
