An exciting opportunity has arisen for two enthusiastic, hardworking, motivated, and patient-focused Band 5 Diagnostic Radiographers to join our friendly radiology team. This post would suit a newly-qualified radiographer or a third year student about to qualify.

The Hillingdon Hospital Radiology Department is undergoing a transformation with the procurement of new equipment. We have recently added a new GE EVO CT scanner, brand new OPG machine with cone beam CT and 2x plain film DR rooms. In addition, a state of the art breast imaging unit has been built at Mount Vernon Hospital.

During your first two years working with us you will not only be able to consolidate and develop your general radiographic skills but also acquire basic competencies in CT.

Opportunities to train in MRI and US are open to all staff, these posts are awarded on merit, not experience.

Our services are provided on two sites at the Hillingdon and Mount Vernon Hospitals.

An interview date is yet to be confirmed.
