Are you an experienced General Radiologist?

We can offer an excellent opportunity to join a progressive team of consultants and contribute to the on-going development of radiological services within the Hywel Dda University Health Board.  

A sub-specialist interest in Cross sectional, Breast, Paediatrics and Musculoskeletal radiology would be a desirable, but not essential attribute as we have more than one General radiologist post we are recruiting for.

We have posts based at Bronglais General Hospital, Aberystwyth, Withybush General Hospital, Pembrokeshire, Glangwili General Hospital, Carmarthen, and Prince Philip Hospital, Llanelli.  The successful candidates will join a team of radiologists with responsibility mainly for providing radiological services within the organisation. 

Out Of Hours (OOH) on call is being outsourced and done remotely by an online Teleradiology provider, therefore the successful applicant will NOT be expected to do oncall routinely.

Only in the very rare unlikely occasion if the link with the Teleradiology company fails, then the in-house radiologist might be called to provide a back up.

Hands-on and Interventional Radiology are provided by the in-house radiologist, but this is an extremely rare request.

Cross-sites collaboration with respect to reporting or MDT meetings is usually done via Teleradiolgy and video conferencing.

The departments of Radiology at the acute sites operate strategically as one department and there is close collaboration leading to the integration of services.  The successful candidates will fully participate with the existing consultants in providing radiology services across Hywel Dda and will be expected to develop a sub-specialist interest, which would augment and compliment the services the board currently provides.

Office accommodation, secretarial support and full IT facilities including access to intranet and internet will be provided.

Hwyel Dda  Health Board is one of seven acute Health Boards in Wales.

This post comes during a period of Health Board-wide service reviews, including a comprehensive reconfiguration of services for the Radiology in West Wales. The aim is to provide a spectrum of flexible and responsive services for the service across the Health Board, encompassing:

Any applicant who is unable, for personal reasons, to work full-time will be considered for the post.  If such a person is appointed, modification of the job content will be discussed on a personal basis in consultation with Consultant colleagues
