We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic, motivated, full time Band 6 radiographer or technologist to join our busy, friendly Nuclear Medicine team at North Bristol NHS Trust (NBT). We provide a comprehensive Nuclear Medicine service to a wide range of specialities within the hospital, including examinations such as melanoma and penile scintigraphy, breast SNL procedures, lung scans, renal studies, cardiac and brain imaging.
Normal working hours are 9-5 Monday to Friday and occasional Saturday working, however we are considering the possibility of extended day working. Full time hours would be preferred but part time and flexible working would also be considered. Participation in weekend SeHCAT cover and occasional late shifts may be required pending clinical demand.
You would be working for the largest NHS Trust in the South West Region providing outstanding medical, surgical and maternity care for a population of approximately half a million people in North Bristol and the surrounding community. With a turnover of £550m and 9000 staff, our clinical teams have built a strong reputation for excellent healthcare. The Nuclear Medicine team carries out approximately 6500 examinations per year.
In 2014 the Trust relocated the majority of its acute services to the Brunel Building, one of the most advanced hospitals in Europe offering exemplary care in a beautiful and purpose built environment. Our current equipment includes a dedicated cardiac camera and 2 dual head gamma-cameras, one with SPECT/CT. In 2020, the Nuclear Medicine department was awarded a Green Impact award for improving environmental practices.
NBT is a centre for specialist health services for major trauma, neurosciences, vascular, plastics and burns, orthopaedics and renal services and is also a prestigious, internationally recognised teaching and research organisation providing care regionally and nationally. Following a CQC inspection in 2019, the Trust has obtained a “Good” rating overall, with “Outstanding” ratings for both “Caring” and “Well-led”.
If you are from outside the area, Bristol is consistently voted as one of the best places to live in the UK, with a rich history, thriving arts, music, gastronomic and independent retails scenes, excellent transport links and easy access to the spectacular countryside and coastlines of South Wales, Devon, Dorset and Cornwall.
Candidates must hold Post-graduate Diploma in Nuclear Medicine or equivalent and a BSc Radiography or equivalent. Radiographers must also have a current Health Professions Council (HCPC) registration and technologists must be willing to submit their application for the Register for Clinical Technologists while in post (if not registered yet).
The benefits you will get from joining the Imaging team are a strong commitment from NBT for your individual personal development, the prospect to work with a fantastic and friendly team of peers and a department that is always open to new ideas and suggestions from all team members, providing a collaborative working environment. We regularly train student radiographers and there are regular opportunities to attend study days and/or clinical governance days.
