Clinical Scientist – Radiation Physics

Radiation Physics, St Luke’s Hospital/Bradford Royal Infirmary, Bradford

Band 7: £38,890 – £44,503 (or appropriate pay point and banding in line with Annex 21 of the NHS Terms and Conditions until registered)

37.5 hours per week

Applications are invited for this post within Radiation Physics at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

We are looking for a motivated individual who is keen to learn and work as part of our team. We provide a range of physics services to diagnostic x-ray, radionuclide, MRI, laser, UV & ultrasound users within the Trust and at a range of external organisations. The largest single component of our work is diagnostic x-ray support but most of us work in more than one area. Your role will be determined to some degree by your interests, abilities and experience as well as the needs of the service. Appropriate training will be provided where required.

Ideally applicants will already have completed the NHS Scientist Training Programme (Medical Physics specialism) or equivalent (eg ACS route 2), and gained HCPC registration as a Clinical Scientist. Suitable candidates who are not yet registered may be considered for appointment at a lower grade in accordance with Annex 21 of the NHS Terms and Conditions until registered.

Applicants must have excellent interpersonal and communication skills.

A full driving licence is required as the post involves travel between hospitals and other customers (reasonable adjustments will be considered).

Bradford is a fascinating city with easy access to amazing countryside and has house prices significantly lower than in much of the rest of the UK.

Applicants wishing to work part time or job share are encouraged to apply as are those with the required qualifications currently working in other medical physics specialisms.

Please contact Shaun Beggs (Head of Radiation Physics) on 0790 375 5264 or at if you have any questions or would like to arrange an informal visit.

Closing date: 26/09/2020 (This may change dependent on the response)

We welcome applications from disabled people or those with long term health conditions. If you need the application form in a different format or need to discuss any reasonable adjustments under the Equality Act 2010, please telephone 01274 276823 or Fax: 01274 274025.
