Job Details

We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic, innovative and progressive Consultant to join our Interventional Radiology Consultant team. The appointee will cover both sites, City Hospital, Birmingham and Sandwell General Hospital during the on call. Applications are welcomed from candidates with FRCR (or equivalent) who are on the General Medical Council's Specialist Register in Radiology or who will be within six months of obtaining their CCT at the time of interview. In addition applicants should demonstrate within their application that they are fully trained in the generality of Radiology. This Job is for a fixed term of 12 months starting as soon as possible and is for 10 PAs including 1 PA for diagnostic radiology

Main duties of the job

This will be a fixed term post for 12 months initially to guide and oversee the continued development of the IR service and the appointment of new substantive colleagues. The postholder will be expected to manage the IR service and to take part in the training and supervision of junior radiologists allocated to the Department.

We provide a full range of non-vascular interventional radiology services at City and Sandwell Hospitals at present. There are excellent relationships with clinical teams in many specialities, with a well established pattern of cooperative working. We have a large uterine artery embolization service as well as a service for renal ablation. We are a major renal stone centre in addition to providing acute services to most other specialities. There is an expectation of return of vascular services and working at the Black Country Hub.

About us

A community of half a million is eagerly anticipating the brand new Midland Metropolitan University Hospital which will be opening in 2024. It will be worth the wait. Its opening will be the beginning of a fresh chapter in our ambitious journey to be the nation's leading provider of integrated care. This new state of the art acute hospital in Grove Lane, Smethwick will bring together all acute services onto one site.

Information about the Specialty

There is a 6 bed day case unit within Sandwell Hospital Radiology department, shared with the gastroenterology team who use some of the beds two sessions a week. A 9 bed unit is present in the new MMUH hospital. We also run our own IR outpatient clinic.

The interventional radiologists participate in the Black Country Alliance non vascular IR on call system. This is a 24/7 service, based on BSIR recommendations. SWBH as an institution is on call to perform procedures for four Trusts (Dudley, Walsall, Wolverhampton and SWBH) one in every 3 weekends (Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays) and will participate overnight on one in three weekdays after appointment of additional radiologists. This service is an extension to our successful weekend nephrostomy service, which was shortlisted for a Health Service Journal award.
