Consultant Radiologist - Interventional Subspecialty
Permanent, Full time
About our Service
Working here might be different from where you’ve just come from, but we bet you’ll love it! This is a fulfilling role, rewarding team and great location to be based. Currently we have a team of 10 consisting of general radiologists and four other interventional radiologists. We are a relaxed and rather informal team, regularly enjoying a good laugh when appropriate, and everyone is on a first name basis. We work as a strong MDT within our radiology service, and always have the welfare of our patients and their families at the core of our work. Due to our size and close collegial relationships throughout the hospital, it is quite normal to go and find the person to get the answer rather than send an email, and you will often find you get feedback regarding the progress of your patients after they’ve left your care, which certainly doesn’t happen in a larger hospital
