The Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest acute Trusts in the country, operating across 3 large hospital sites; Heartlands, Good Hope and Solihull. We also provide a range of community services and run a number of ‘satellite’ units.

Our Trust serves a diverse population, seeing and treating more than 1.2 million people every year. In 2015/16 we dealt with: 907,602 outpatient attendances, 261,225 A&E attendances, 87,198 day case & elective spells, 74,182 emergency spells and supported 9,989 births.

The Imaging Directorate provides 24/7 service delivery and has an established track record of service re-design and transformation. The current focus has seen a financial investment of over £3 million to upgrade and modernise the equipment and facilities at each of the 3 hospital sites.

Design and enabling works have begun on a multi-million Ambulatory Care and Diagnostics (ACAD) centre at Heartlands. The £70m project, due for completion in 2020, will see the purpose-built centre provide world-class facilities to accommodate interventional radiology together with CT, MRI, ultrasound and plain film facilities.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and well-motivated Consultant Radiologist to support the delivery of our mission and vision, Pioneering the future of Medical Imaging… an inclusive and progressive diagnostic imaging service delivering excellence for all, now and for generations to come.

Successful candidates will provide a high quality service to adults, children and young people using best practice at all times promoting a positive patient and family experience embracing sensitivity to individual patient’s needs.

We are seeking to appoint Consultant Radiologists with an interest across a range of specialist interests including uro-radiology, gynaecology, head and neck, gastroenterology and breast radiology. The successful candidate will be part of a team of 28 Consultant Radiologists across this busy and successful trust, providing imaging services across 4 sites; Birmingham Heartlands, Solihull, Good Hope Hospitals and Birmingham Chest Clinic.

The Imaging Directorate performs in excess of 570,000 examinations per annum providing a wide range of general and specialised services in support of the clinical units within the Trust. The Imaging Directorate has received major investment with the recent replacement of two CT scanners, Interventional Radiology suite, three X-ray rooms to name a few. Plans are well underway to replace the MRI scanner at Solihull hospital with an expected completion date of June 2018.

An Imaging Modernisation Project is under way with the aim of taking the Directorate forward in terms of equipment and staffing to provide a high quality service of the highest standard. The expansion of Consultants will allow the development of a more flexible service that will ensure there is sufficient consultant capacity to meet current needs, but also support clinical development and innovation, to maximise the contribution of imaging in the delivery of world class healthcare for the future. It will also continue to facilitate the development of the consultant body, meeting both academic needs and the increase in attendance and involvement at clinical meetings.

The successful candidate will be involved in supporting the Imaging Directorate with appropriate imaging and interventional techniques. In addition the post holders will also be required to contribute to general radiological services to include regular commitment to general CT, MRI, ultrasound and plain film service provision within the Trust and to take part in the out-of-hours provision, the frequency of which will depend on the post appointed to.

Candidates will be considered for appointment on a full time, part time or job share basis. Full details of each specialist interest are available on request.
