Our breast screening programme is one of the largest in the East Midlands. Our Breast Screening population is 160,000. In addition to the screening activity our symptomatic and surveillance demand is approximately 17,000 per year. We are a centre that is actively involved in clinical trials and have successfully secured Tomosynthesis and Contrast Enhanced Mammography equipment. There is also the opportunity to practice a wide range of diagnostic and interventional procedures including breast MRI (screening and symptomatic) and increasing use of vacuum assisted biopsy.

Successful candidates will be welcome, if appropriate to participate in the on-call rota covering acute radiology as well as undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and clinical governance/audit.

We are looking for people that live our values to help us make a difference to the thousands of patients who come to us for treatment every year. You will need to be motivated, passionate, and able to work as part of a team. Working for University Hospitals of Leicester (UHL) will be a challenging, ever-changing and a rewarding experience.
