Radiographer

An exciting opportunity has arisen at this recently merged Trust for an experienced, enthusiastic and self-motivated Band 5 plain film Radiographer (22.5 hours per week) to join our established team at Samuel Johnson Community Hospital.

Our Community Hospitals are very busy carrying out a wide range of general plain film examinations. Both departments are very friendly and welcoming using DR.

We have strong links with the main department at Queens Hospital Burton and have established links to universities meaning you will be instrumental in helping our team provide a conducive learning environment for student radiographer education. We actively encourage CPD and role extension and provide support to pursue academic courses to develop your career. Radiographers are entitled to 4 hours prearranged CPD time per month.

We have an established team of experienced Advanced Practitioner reporting Radiographers in plain film providing excellent support to the Community Hospitals.

As a motivated Radiographer, you should have at least three years’ experience and possess knowledge of all plain film investigations inclusive of some trauma Radiography as both departments support Minor Injury Units. Your role will be to play a proactive part in the running of both departments working closely with the superintendent, Radiographers, Assistant Practitioners and Students.

You will be involved with the wider Trust, streamlining the care pathway for all patients referred for imaging, undertaking high quality diagnosis.

You will be expected to take part in the weekend working at the community which is a three hour Saturday morning duty on each site.

You should hold an up to date current HCPC Registration.

Please note that this Band 5 post is a Trust wide position.

In return we will offer:

  • Development opportunities, including both professional and leadership development, together with an opportunity to work across some or all of our 5 sites depending on specialty
  • Support through every step of the way from recruitment to when you join our team and beyond
  • Friendly, supportive and caring colleagues
