We are expanding our imaging team to support our Community Diagnostic Centre and are looking for junior and experienced radiographers to join us at this exciting time.

The Radiographer role will work within a multidisciplinary team to support delivery in both acute and community sites providing opportunities for a wide range of both routine and complex radiography.

The team are supported by imaging support workers and nurses.

We offer an extensive preceptorship programme for newly qualified radiographers. There is a current programme for link-grading to Band 6 after two years post-graduate experience is gained although this is subject to availability.

Part-time and fixed night patterns are options that will be given consideration although all patterns would have to be consistent with service delivery and training requirements.

Student Radiographers are welcome to apply.
