General Radiologist with a sub-specialty interest, ideally in intervention, to compliment the service. 10 PAs

Do you want a job where you can live in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, with award winning sandy beaches with great surfing, and some of the best golf courses in England? Do you want colleagues that are a real pleasure to work with, who support each other, and allow new colleagues to find their feet and develop services in the way that suits them? Do you want to work in a small, very friendly hospital, with first name relationships and team working? Do you want affordable house prices, whether rural or urban, great local schools, a real sense of community and a fabulous environment for families? If the answer is yes then please come and see us.

The Radiology Department is friendly and provides high quality general and specialist services which are greatly appreciated by the Hospital doctors and GPs. On call is Consultant to Consultant referral, and the rota is one in six or seven, dependent on recruitment, with cross cover. A laptop is provided for on call, with reporting from home. Overnight (from 9pm to 9am) scans are reported by registrars via shared PACS and CRIS covering four local Trusts. From 5-9 every evening imaging is outsourced.

The general workload includes x-ray and cross sectional reporting, an ultrasound list (though not essential) and MDT meetings. Liaison duties include providing radiological opinions and vetting and reporting CT and MRI scans for inpatients. Outpatient CT & MRI scans are allocated on a quota basis. This post is for a general radiologist ideally with an interventional interest, but other interests would certainly be considered. Development of a subspecialist interest would be supported – abdominal, CT colonography, neurology, paediatric, thoracic, musculo-skeletal or uro-gynaecological would be particularly welcomed, but any subspecialty interest would be considered.

Specialist sessions may be available at Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital depending on specialty interests

Our values guide everything we do. At all times, we aim to:

  • Demonstrate compassion
  • Strive for excellence
  • Respect diversity
  • Act with integrity
  • Listen and support others

Our teams of care professionals work with patients and their families to support peoples’ independence, health and wellbeing. We provide support to avoid hospital admissions, and if an admission is necessary, we try to make each patient’s stay in hospital as short and effective as possible before working with them on a safe discharge home.

According to many clinical targets, we rate as one of the best performing non-foundation trusts in England, because we treat patients in line with national waiting time standards, have very few hospital-acquired infections and meet our four-hour waiting times for urgent care. We have a huge range of clinical expertise that we share across professional spheres to ensure people get world-class care when they need it.

In our most recent staff survey, our staff voted us in the top 10% of NHS provider organisations to work for and we also came out as the top provider in the South West for our overall results. Our patients (through the Friends and Family Test) regularly report an average of over 95% satisfaction with our services.
