Derriford Hospital

Applications are invited for Interventional Radiologists to join a Tertiary Hospital Radiology department consisting of 39 consultant Radiologists delivering all aspects of diagnostic imaging and interventional radiology.

This is a new post that has been created in order to meet the current demand for Interventional Radiology Services, to facilitate the expansion of the service including new interventional radiology, and to support the existing on-call service.

This is an exciting opportunity for either a new consultant or someone with prior consultant experience to join a supportive team consisting of four established Interventional Radiologists, 7 specialist radiographers, 7 specialist nurses, 1 HCA and clerical staff.

The post holder will be expected to deliver regular Vascular and non-Vascular IR sessions. In addition, the department is able to offer elective and emergency CT guided intervention lists in a dedicated CT scanner adjacent to the Interventional radiology suites. There is also an opportunity to be involved in IR clinics, and time is allocated for IR case planning and IR ward rounds. Successful applicants would also be expected to contribute to the general diagnostic radiology service as well as partake in audit, teaching, research and MDT meetings.

The trust has an Interventional Radiology on call service for Vascular and Non-Vascular Intervention which is currently maintained by four interventional radiologists with internal locum cover. Successful candidates would be expected to join the on call rota with a 1:6 frequency. Neuro intervention is currently delivered by a separate team.

The post holder will take part in the Interventional Radiology on call rota which will be 1:5 or 1:6 dependent on recruitment into both available posts.

Applicants must be eligible for inclusion on the Specialist Register or be within 6 months of your expected CCT in Radiology or equivalent at the time of the interview. Candidates are welcome to visit the Department and initial contact should be made with one of the following:

Dr Mladen Macanovic, Lead Interventional Radiologist via his secretary on 01752 439827 or David King Deputy Service Line Cluster Manager 01752 439472.
