Consultant Interventional Radiologist with experience in mechanical thrombectomy

We are looking to recruit a Consultant Interventional Radiologist with experience and passion for mechanical thrombectomy to join the team and lead on the final part of our neurosciences plan to establish a thrombectomy service in the new IRU facility.

Exciting Developments are happening in Interventional Radiology and Neurosciences at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, come join us now and be a part of our three year plan to become a Neurosciences Centre and as we start the build on our brand new Interventional Radiology Unit, quadrupling our current capacity.

Construction has already started on a brand new £7 million extension to quadruple our existing IRU facilities. Due to open in Spring 2020, The new extension will not only give the team state of the art facilities to work it will also allow us to extend the wide variety of interventional procedures already performed at NNUH.

Once opened the IRU at NNUH will be the only place in the UK to have 4 suites with state of the art Siemens Artis Phenos technology in two of the rooms, a fully kitted out 16 bed recovery unit and most excitingly there are plans for the unit to become a national training and reference centre.

The NNUH already has a large and well established Stroke centre and pathways where we are consistently SNAP AA rated. In terms of size we are regularly in the top 4 largest stroke centres in the UK , adding the additional thrombectomy service to this portfolio will make us one of the leaders in the field

This is a really exciting opportunity for someone to join our team and take a lead on how we establish a thrombectomy service at NNUH. We already have proven history of close working relations within the hospital between divisions, for example all Endovascular aortic repairs are undertaken as joint procedures between Interventional Radiologist Consultant and Vascular Surgeons.


Just think where your NNUH career could take you. Norfolk and Norwich university Hospital is the 6th largest acute hospital in the UK with new clinics and services being introduced each year, the possibilities are endless. With strong links to the University of East Anglia and Norwich Research Park we want to give our staff every opportunity and the support to achieve their potential.

Why Norwich?

In Norwich a staggering 77% of people say they love their job. Although less than 2 hours from London and serviced by excellent transport links , Norwich is one of few UK cities that still retain a strong local identity and with that a strong sense of community – people walk down the street and say hello to each other, baristas remember our coffee order, you get to know about interesting local projects.

This strong sense of self along with excellent shopping, eating out, affordable house prices and excellent schooling is why Norwich has been ranked by the Guardian as the best city to work in.

Don’t take our word for it – Neurology Service Director, Godwin Mamutse chose to accept at Role at NNUH after experiencing Norwich hospitality first hand.

“Arriving in Norwich for the interview visit, I approached a bus driver to ask for directions to the bus to a B&B I had booked. After being invited to take a seat at the back of the bus, I feared that I had been forgotten about when the driver took off with the now full bus. A few hundred metres further on, the driver parked at a stop, beckoned me over and walked with me to a corner to show me where to get my bus. I have since encountered many equally friendly people in job role and cannot imagine any better place to work and live. A safe environment to bring kids up in, good schools, large open spaces, a beautiful city and a beautiful coast line than an hour’s drive away are but a few of many extra attractions”.
