Following recent approval to establish a Scotland-wide Lu-177 (Lutathera) therapy service for NET cancer patients the Nuclear Medicine Department at Gartnavel General Hospital is looking to appoint an Associate Technologist to support the delivery of the new service and the general work of the department which not only includes general imaging and non-imaging diagnostic Nuclear Medicine and PET but also a wide ranging NM therapy service for both in-patients and out-patients. You will operate in both the PET Centre and Nuclear Medicine, concentrating on the delivery of the radionuclide therapy service. This post is an exciting opportunity for you to develop skills across a range of modalities. It is anticipated that the departments will continue to expand their research profile and you will contribute to this interesting, non-routine, aspect of the work. The Nuclear Medicine Department at Gartnavel General Hospital operates on three sites (two on the Gartnavel campus) and provides a PET imaging and in-patient therapeutic service to the West of Scotland, serving patients from Dumfries to Stornoway. The department, which employs 29 staff, has 2 PET/CT scanners (with a 3rd scanner being planned), a new SPECT/CT scanner, and 2 SPECT scanners. The PET service is supported by an on-site cyclotron (which is run separately). It is essential that you have an HNC/SVQ III or equivalent experience in a scientific discipline also basic knowledge and understanding of medical terminology is required at entry which will develop through training & experience to a specialist level. Ideally you will have prior experience as a clinical support worker or assistant technologist, preferably in a nuclear medicine setting; however this is not mandatory and applicants who can demonstrate an enthusiastic and caring nature and a flexible but reliable approach to work will be considered.
For further information, please contact Dr Sandy Small (Head of Department) or Elaine Renwick (Technical Services Manager) both on.
PLEASE READ AND SAVE THE CANDIDATE APPLICATION PACK BEFORE SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION. This post will be closing on the 1st March 2019.
