Are you looking for an interesting and rewarding job with good work life balance in a stunningly beautiful rural location? We are looking for Consultants to join our expanding Department supporting 520,000 people in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid-Wales at ‘The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust’.

The Role and Department

The Radiology department has recently undergone upgrades and major renovation, with the installation of 3 Siemens 1.5T MRI Scanners.

We have an extremely successful screening program with one of the highest cancer detection rates and attendance rates in the UK. The cohesive, friendly team incorporates 4 tier advanced practice with a Consultant Radiographer. A fully integrated Breast service is provided with Symptomatic and Screening run by the same team. The breast service is entirely digital and offers vacuum assisted biopsies as part of the overall service. An experienced, established clinician may be interested in the prospect of being Clinical Director of breast screening.

Flexible working is provided within a defined overall workload and no on-call commitment is required but can be incorporated if desired.

The Trust

We have a lovely family-feel about us and consist of 2 acute hospitals split across two sites -just 20 minutes’ drive apart. The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and The Princess Royal Hospital, Telford. 

As a Trust, we have recently secured £312 million pounds of funding to undergo a significant reconfiguration. Once the changes have been finalised, we will benefit from modern facilities and new equipment.

It’s a particularly good time to join our Trust as we are currently working in collaboration with the Virginia Mason Institute in Seattle. We were one of the first UK trusts to receive this support from one of the safest hospitals in the world and we are 3 years into a 5-year journey. As a senior health care professional, you will have the chance to work directly alongside the representatives from the VMI within our hospitals.


We are ideally located between the north and the south, making travelling around the UK extremely easy. As well as being only a short distance from major cities and busy transport links including Birmingham airport, our county also borders with beautiful north Wales which is abundant in outdoor activities, brilliant beaches, and thrilling scenery.
