Tired of doing the same old scans? Finding your workload mundane?
Are you dreaming of widening your horizons? Then come and join our rapidly expanding Nuclear Medicine team with exciting opportunities for all!
Due to service expansion we have a vacancy for another Senior Nuclear Medicine Technologist / Radiographer Band 6 and welcome applications from experienced and enthusiastic clinical technologists / radiographers who would like to join our dedicated multidisciplinary team in nuclear medicine at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.
The service has 3 gamma cameras at QEHB, two of which are SPECT-CT machines, and a 64 slice PET-CT camera at the on-site Birmingham PET Centre. A second PET Centre is planned. As one of the UK’s leading specialist centres we provide a full and comprehensive range of PET, Bone Mineral Densitometry, radionuclide imaging and non-imaging diagnostic procedures. The department also provides a specialist dedicated paediatric Nuclear Medicine service at our satellite department at Birmingham Children’s Hospital with an up to date SPECT-CT camera.
The department has a very active and progressive radionuclide therapy service, including Radioiodine, mIBG, 223Radium, 90Yttrium SIRT and 177Lutetium Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy.
We have a dedicated on-site licensed Radiopharmacy which reopened in 2014 following a full rebuild. The unit provides a full range of diagnostic and therapy radiopharmaceuticals and blood labelling facilities, and we are about to start production of Gallium-68 PET radiopharmaceuticals.
You will carry out a wide range of duties appropriate to grade and experience including PET-CT scanning on rotation, where you will work 3 long days with 4 days off. The department actively participates in clinical trials and you will have the opportunity to take part in research and development.
The Nuclear Medicine service at QEHB currently employs 56 staff and continues to expand apace (physicists, technologists, radiographers, assistant practitioners, clinical assistants, radiopharmacy, nursing and admin staff). We also have 6 Nuclear Medicine radiologists. Following the recent merger with Heart of England Foundation Trust, we now have two other single-camera departments at Heartlands and Good Hope hospitals within the Trust. In contrast to many other nuclear medicine services, at the QEHB we are expanding and are on a sound financial footing for the foreseeable future, so there are good prospects for career progression.
CPD is actively encouraged and you will be supported to further your knowledge and experience by attending and presenting at national and international conferences and seminars.
Applicants with less experience will be considered for annex U Band 6 until the required level of training /experience has been attained.
