We have a vacancy for a Plain X-ray based Band 5 Radiographer at the Glenfield Hospital.

Come and join our forward thinking and extremely friendly team in the University Hospitals of Leicester (UHL), which is one of the largest Hospital Trusts in the country. This post is suitable for both final year students and experienced Radiographers. UHL spans three hospital sites, employs around 14500 staff and fully embraces role extension.

Imaging has regularly supported career progression in Radiographic Reporting/Advanced Practice and the other roles such as Hysterosalpinography, Vascular Access and Ultrasonography.
The Glenfield Hospital is a busy expanding site with a planned increase in service provision and currently has approximately 400+ beds, provides a range of services for patients, including nationally recognised medical care for heart disease, lung cancer and breast care. Building work is
underway to further include hepatobiliary and renal transplant cases.
The well-equipped Radiology Department is due to expand and the fully DR plain x-ray workload includes GP access for MSK and cardiorespiratory examinations; a variety of out-patient & inpatient referrals and 24/7 Theatre cover. In addition, there is an optional dental radiography
rotation and we also provide a fluoroscopic procedures service. Some rotation between the plain film and the cross-sectional team has been supported in the past for those who have requested it. The fluoroscopic aspect of the department is expanding in May 2021, with building work already commenced. The nearby Leicester Royal Infirmary has a
busy Emergency Department and following a suitable induction period, there exists a potential opportunity for those who also wish to develop their trauma experience via an additional bank post. It is essential that you are a good communicator and team player; enthusiastic and driven.
As a successful applicant, you will be required to participate in the 24/7 out-of-hours roster which includes night duties, weekends and public holiday shifts and you may be expected to work
across site. Due to the nature of the interview, virtual/video interviews are unable to be accommodated and interviews must be attended in person.

Please apply if you feel you will be able to attend an interview in Leicester within a few weeks of the advert closing date.

Please note that UHL are unable to reimburse travel expenses to attend interviews.

Due to the changeable nature of COVID, interview dates might change at short notice to allow for safe face to face interview
