If you are a motivated radiologist who is looking for a challenging, fast-paced, and growing radiology department, Blackpool Teaching Hospitals may just be the place for you!Not only would you have access to the latest technology (3 1.5T Siemens MRI scanners, 5 cutting-edge CT scanners, and a state-of-the-art Nuclear Medicine SPECT CT suite), you'd have a very team-focussed department with a strong support ethic. We pride ourselves on encouraging all team members to reach their goals and their potential. We can offer and encourage learning and training opportunities to expand your skillset as well!Currently, our team consists of 18 general radiologists with various subspecialties, including breast, upper/lower GI, musculoskeletal, urology, paediatrics and more. Radiology is located in the main BTH site and offers CT, MRI, US, PF, NM, DEXA Mammography and non-vascular intervention.Our refurbishment of the Central Radiology department in early 2021 has led to a cutting-edge diagnostic department, with a future-proofed capital replacement programme in place. We operate the latest technology in terms of our PACS solution with Agfa Enterprise Imaging which was upgraded in December 2019 across our entire estate. Along with our ambitious plans for the future, we are also investing in artificial intelligence solutions within our department.

Main duties of the job

The clinical commitments of this post will include responsibility for provision of all aspects of a Diagnostic Radiology Service at Blackpool Teaching Hospital (BTH), including CT, MRI, Plain Film, NM, and Ultrasound. An interest in Head & Neck and ENT imaging would be essential.

There may also be an occasion a requirement to provide diagnostic reports on patients at CDC sites and community hospitals. At present we operate a Radiologist of the Day system, but this is under review, particularly as we gain more consultants within the department. The aim of the department is to become more efficient and to minimise interruptions to individual consultants as much as possible.
