It is envisaged that this service will closely support our partner hospitals in delivering accessible, high quality treatment to the people of Coventry & Warwickshire.

N.B. We reserve the right to close a vacancy before the closing date if we receive a high volume of applications or if there has been a change in organisational priorities.

Main duties of the job

The principal activities of the post will be:

  • Liaise with Trust management, the Cardiac Network, Primary Care Trusts, Commissioners
  • and supporting professionals to develop a Cardiac Imaging service of the highest quality (with a particular emphasis on CT/MRI).
  • Work closely with Cardiologists throughout the area to ensure equality of access for patients from outside the immediate Coventry area.
  • Provide core components of the Cardiac Imaging service with the assistance of clinical colleagues in the departments of Cardiology and Radiology, to include supervision and reporting of CT and cardiac MRI scans.
  • Develop and implement appropriate outcome measures to assess the effectiveness of the Cardiac Imaging service provided at University Hospital.
  • An additional sub-specialist interest of value to the department is strongly encouraged.
  • Participate in the affairs of the Cardiac Department and the speciality of Cardiology.
  • Supervise, teach and train junior medical staff, attached nursing staff and medical technical officers.
  • Participate in a regular programme of clinical audit and CME.
  • Teach medical students who attend from the University of Warwick.
  • The successful applicant will be encouraged to undertake research.
