Wide ranging clinical radiology experience is also required and you will be employed on a 10 PA contract.
Guernsey is the second largest of the Channel Islands with an independent jurisdiction comprising the island of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm. It is located less than an hours flying time from London, and sits 20 miles off the west coast of France. There are direct air links to several UK destinations and a high-speed ferry. As one of the most southerly islands of the British Isles, Guernseys climate is temperate with mild winters and warm, dry, sunny summers (an average of 7.5 hours of sunshine per day from May to September).
