More information

Situated in the Shropshire hills, The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RJAH) is a leading orthopaedic centre of excellence. A specialist hospital with a reputation for innovation, the Trust provides a comprehensive range of musculoskeletal (bone, joint and tissue) surgical, medical and rehabilitation services; locally, regionally and nationally.

Notably, the trust houses the Midland Centre for Spinal Injuries, which is one of only 11 centres in the UK specifically designated to receive and treat spinal cord injured patients, the Veteran’s Orthopaedic Service, which is open to those who have served with the UK military, including National Service, treating arthritic lower limb problems, and the Montgomery Unit, which is one of only 5 specialist bone cancer centres in the UK.

The department has 6 General X-Ray rooms, of which 5 rooms are outpatient general rooms and 1 is a dedicated inpatient room. Most of our x-ray rooms are retro-fitted to DR. We also house a Fuji GL long-view system which is one of only two in the UK.

There will also be opportunity to partake in fluoroscopy, including a significant amount of theatre work, primarily supporting the above areas in specialist, imaging intensive and complex surgery. There are a total of 7 mobile image intensifiers to support 12 operating theatres. Most of the theatre work takes place in our £15.1 million theatre and ward development which opened in 2015. We have also recently procured a Siemens CIOS Fusion flat panel C-Arm as part of our ongoing equipment replacement plan, as strategy to increase image quality whilst keeping doses low.

We have an interventional suite in which you will be involved with procedures such as image guided joint injections for MRI Arthrograms and therapeutic pain relief.

There are two MRI scanners at the trust, a 3T and 1.5T, which you will have opportunity to rotate through on an opt-in basis.

Due to our status as a specialist orthopaedic centre, we have a strongfocus on image quality. This means you will be encouraged to develop your skills within a friendly and supportive environment and allowed the time to get things right.
