Consultant Radiologist- Cancer Imaging

The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s leading providers of non-surgical cancer treatment, caring for a population of 2.4 million people across Cheshire & Merseyside, North Wales, the Isle of Man and parts of Lancashire.

Our flagship specialist cancer hospital in Liverpool opened in June 2020, supported by our hospital on the Clatterbridge Health Park in Wirral providing outpatient cancer treatment and supportive care, and our radiotherapy treatment centre on the Aintree Hospital site.

Together, working across three sites and operating specialist chemotherapy clinics in four of Merseyside’s district hospitals, we are able to deliver a comprehensive range of inpatient care, advanced radiotherapy, chemotherapy and other systemic anti-cancer therapies including gene therapies and immunotherapies. We also deliver a pioneering Treatment at Home and Work service; are the only facility in the UK providing low-energy proton beam therapy to treat rare eye cancers and host the region’s Teenage and Young Adult Unit, (supported by the Teenage Cancer Trust).

Working with leading experts from The University of Liverpool and the Cancer Research UK Liverpool Cancer Trials Unit we strive to stay at the forefront of novel treatments and techniques to deliver more effective and personalised treatments than ever before.

Diagnostic Imaging will play a key part in the future services and we are building our Radiology team in readiness for expansion of the service. These posts will be based at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre in both Liverpool and the Wirral sites.

The Department currently provides a comprehensive oncological radiology service, facilities include general radiology (using DR), CT, MR ultrasound, nuclear medicine and PET CT. There is provision of PET/CT activity as part of the National Contract, working as a sub-contractor to Alliance Medical.

The workload is largely Oncology related with no on-call commitment. The new Liverpool Cancer Centre will include CT, MRI, PET/CT, U/S, Plain X-Ray. We are also creating an interventional radiology room within the radiology department in Liverpool to provide a new IR service.

The department is currently working towards the nationally recognised QSI (ISAS) accreditation and aims to achieve that goal this year.

These posts are a great opportunity to join an exciting team of specialists in a brand new cancer centre contiguous with the New Royal Liverpool University Hospital (RLBUHT). Some consultant radiologists already work jointly at CCC Wirral and at the RLBUHT. The advertised posts potentially allow for similar joint job plans with sessions in both hospitals.

Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

The Trust takes an active responsibility for ensuring systems, policies and processes are in place to safeguard Children, young people and Adults, supporting the national and local agenda around safeguarding, including local arrangements for the protection of children young person and adults at risk.
