Consultant Head & Neck Radiologist

We would like to offer an opportunity for enthusiastic radiologists who wish to develop and/or continue their careers in our department’s friendly, harmonious and supportive environment.

Following expansion of our service, merger of the Derby and Burton hospitals, and succession planning , applications are invited for 3 Consultant Radiologist posts; one in Head and Neck Radiology and two in Breast Radiology . Both posts will involve a component of general radiology.

A multidisciplinary group comprising consultants and radiographers provide a comprehensive, multi –modality Head + Neck and Breast imaging service involving regular MDTs, across the Trust.

The University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust have a funded establishment of 41 Consultant Radiologists. In addition to this we have 16 Speciality Registrars on rotation from Nottingham and Leicester . This number should increase to 21 by September 2021. Consultant Radiologists are expected to cover general imaging reporting as well as their sub-speciality and their work will be supported by a large cross site team of 12 Reporting Radiographers reporting plain film, CT and MRI .

The post attracts 10 PAs (8.5 DCC + 1.5 SPA) but we would be happy to consider part time working arrangements. There is opportunity for additional PAs for dedicated SIFT funded teaching. We are keen to support staff development and a study leave allowance is provided for this.

We are keen to promote flexible working, which may be facilitated by home workstations. Approximately half our consultant work force have home work stations and we can work together to achieve a mutually beneficial job plan which enhances the work life balance of the successful candidates.

We are now a large cross site imaging department employing approximately 650 staff offering all imaging modalities. The Royal Derby site was the first imaging department in the East Midlands to obtain ISAS accreditation (2016) and this has been recently renewed to 2023. There has been a recent imaging equipment refurbishment programme which is part of a Managed Equipment Service scheme leaving us with modern up to date scanners – 8 MRI (one 3T) and 6 CT (five 128 slice). There are 5 fluoroscopy rooms including 2 dedicated interventional suites and a hybrid theatre will be operational in 2021. The Trust Imaging Department also provides imaging services at seven community hospitals throughout Derbyshire and East Staffordshire.

The merger of Derby and Burton Hospitals occurred in July 2018 forming the 7th largest Trust in the country. The University Hospital of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust now serves a community of approximately 1 million people in Derbyshire and East Staffordshire and provides over 1400 acute beds. The Trust obtained a ‘good’ CQC rating in 2019 and has a graduate entry medical school allied to the University of Nottingham. There are expanding academic departments in medicine, paediatrics, Obstetrics & gynaecology, rehabilitation and surgery providing opportunity for research and teaching. We’re also nationally recognised for volunteering, which gives our Trust a warm and friendly environment.

Derby and Burton offer everything from cosmopolitan city life to outstanding countryside in the Peak district of Derbyshire and have excellent national and international transport links. The region has great housing options ranging from picturesque villages to the city, and for families there are a host of exceptional state and private schools. For sports fans the region has the world-famous Donnington Park motor racing circuit, Derbyshire County Cricket Club and a vibrant Derby County Football Club currently in the Championship.

These consultant posts attract a recruitment and retention premium and are eligible for full removal expenses where applicable.
