Consultant Radiologists (Breast plus General, Interventional Radiology and Nuclear Medicine)


“Exciting opportunity to work in a patient centred clinical services”


North Wales


Flexible Contracts, significant package plus relocation


Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is the largest health board in Wales employing circa 16,500 staff, has a budget of around £1.2 billion and operates three district general hospitals, 22 other acute and community hospitals and a network of more than 90 health centres, clinics, community health team bases and mental health units.


The Health Board has a clear vision and ambition to provide truly outstanding health care services for all its communities and so has established an integrated radiology department operating from 3 sites. The post holders will be based in a brand new, purpose built Department at Glan Clwyd Hospital and will be part of multidisciplinary team supporting breast and other services in North Wales. The breast position is primarily to support symptomatic breast services, but the radiology division also has a number of consultants with commitments to the national breast screening service (Breast Test Wales) which is managed by Public Health Wales - a joint appointment may be considered.


The Health Board is seeking to expand its established team of consultants by appointing talented, ambitious, visionary clinician to join the North Wales radiology department through this dynamic phase of its development. Consultants are offered the opportunity to take a leading role in a particular area of MDT specialist interest such as breast. The flexibility of working off site clinical and supportive sessions is also in place and can be discussed in details with the interested candidates.


There is an established environment of teaching and training for junior radiology medical staff and other clinical groups. Support for the senior medical staff is also provided. An intradepartmental CPD programme involves learning from discrepancy, audit and governance meetings. This is further supplemented by hospital grand rounds and a variety of courses arranged by the postgraduate department aimed at career progression. Appropriate external CPD is funded.


Excited by this opportunity to pioneer contemporary solutions that will transform radiology service delivery across a very wide footprint, both within and outside Wales, you will offer a refreshing, entrepreneurial and naturally creative style together with the determination to deliver excellent service provision that sets you apart from your peers. This is an outstanding opportunity to join a leading edge radiology service and for candidates with an interest in service modernisation to develop their careers.


North Wales offers a myriad of opportunities for outside leisure interests such as sailing from Deganwy, climbing and walking in Snowdonia or Mountain biking in Llandegla. It offers excellent recreational facilities for families, access to higher and further education and you can talk to us if your partner is a Health Professional as well and we can consider how we might support their career too. You will work closely with the other tertiary centres in Cardiff, Liverpool and Manchester and have close links with Bangor University.


BCHUB is committed to improving the working lives of our employees. We actively promote equal opportunities, flexible working & staff support. Applications from those wishing to work less than full time will be encouraged.
