Warrington & Halton Hospital is looking to recruit some Amazing Radiographers.

We are the ‘hidden-gem’ of the North-West and if you are a motivated, hard- working professional, who wants to progress in your career, then “WE ARE” the perfect place for you.


We are a team that is keen to push boundaries and develop our staff from within. We support Radiographer Reporting in Chest, Abdomen, MSK, and Nuclear Medicine. We also support Radiographer-Led CT Colonography, with advanced practice in Mammography & Interventional Theatres.
