  • Perform skeletal Image Reporting (if in possession of a Post Grad diploma qualification)
  • Support the Modality Lead Radiographer in managing the day to day running of a high quality and timely Plain Imaging service.
  • Contribute to the clinical delivery of 24/7 Imaging services, prioritizing workload for the department, and resolving any technical and clinical issues
