If you are a registered Therapeutic Radiographer looking to further your skills and knowledge in a forward thinking and technically advanced team, why not come and join us?

We are looking to recruit a committed, patient focused Therapeutic Radiographer to join our friendly team here at the Rosemere Cancer Centre. Our department at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS FT is a busy centre providing ISO9001:2015 certificated external beam radiotherapy services for Lancashire and South Cumbria. We are part of a Radiotherapy Operational Delivery Network collaborating with the Christie NHS FT and The Clatterbridge Centre NHS FT to provide high quality radiotherapy across the North West of England.

We have seven matched Elekta linear accelerators all with cone beam imaging capability, two Phillips BORE CT scanners and an Xstrahl Superficial Unit networked by a MOSAIQ patient management system. We employ a wide range of techniques including IGRT, IMRT and VMAT. Radiographer-led daily IGRT is routine for complex and innovative radiotherapy delivery procedures. We are a commissioned provider of Intracranial SRS/T and SABR.

You will rotate through pre-treatment and treatment delivery allowing you to practice in all aspects of external beam radiotherapy localisation, planning, data prep, treatment delivery and imaging. New graduates are supported by a well-established Preceptorship programme and lifelong learning is central to both Departmental and Trust values. The Radiotherapy department has successfully integrated role extension into its culture and has implemented Advanced Clinical Practitioner and Consultant Practitioner roles in Therapeutic Radiography. Additional to this there is a strong research ethic with opportunities for active involvement with research at all levels.

You will work flexibly to deliver an excellent service in all Radiotherapy work areas, ensuring efficient throughput of workload and delivery of high standards of technical and patient care whist acting as a role model and patient advocate.

Preston has excellent road and rail links, being in easy reach of the M6 / M61 / M55 motorways and is a key station on the West Coast mainline between London Euston and Glasgow / Edinburgh.
