Main duties of the job

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 5/6 (dependent on experience) Radiographer based at the Coalville Hospital. The University Hospitals of Leicester is one of the largest Hospital Trusts in the country and treated over a million patients last year.

The community aspect of UHL comprises of 6 community hospitals, namely, Melton, Rutland, Market Harborough, Loughborough, Hinckley and Coalville.

The successful applicant will be highly motivated and enthusiastic. You will participate in the day to day running of the department at the Coalville Site, and will take part in audit, QC, student training, and other duties as required.
