At the University Hospitals of Leicester we have an exciting vacancy for an ambitious and enthusiastic Band 6 paediatric Radiographer who shares our vision of becoming the best.

Located in the centre of England, UHL spans three hospital sites, employs around 14,500 staff and offers a range of acute and non-acute services. The brand new Children’s Hospital is under construction at Leicester Royal Infirmary with phase 1 to be completed in December 2020 which will include the rapidly expanding East Midlands Congenital Heart Centre.

As a paediatric radiographer you will receive full training to work in the biplane paediatric cardiac catheter lab, rotation through plain film in our recently, purpose built Emergency Department and our paediatric in-patient and out-patient departments. You will also have the opportunity to join our award winning Forensic Radiography service offering virtual autopsy should that be of interest to you.

Your working pattern will include participation on the 24 hour on-call rota for the cardiac catheter lab as well as weekend and public holiday shift working.

We work with DR and CR plain film units and we have state of the art equipment installed in the catheter lab.

Within the imaging department we regularly support career progression in radiographic reporting/Advance Practice and other roles such as ultrasound and vascular access.

It is essential that you are a good communicator and team player; enthusiastic and driven and will embody our Trust Values.
