Are you a hardworking and motivated radiographer wishing to specialise in the field of breast imaging? Come and join our friendly department and you will be part of a multi-disciplinary breast team based at the Nottingham Breast Institute undertaking mammography practice within the NHS Breast Screening Programme and the Symptomatic Breast Service.
We provide all outpatient services for those requiring diagnosis or treatment in the Nottingham area and we deliver the Nottinghamshire breast screening programme with a screening population of over 117,000 women. In this role you will work alongside our experienced team of advanced practitioners, radiographers, assistant practitioners and radiographic assistants participating in both screening and symptomatic mammography. You will also work within our family history, breast cancer follow-up and screening assessment clinics and will have the opportunity to perform Contrast Enhanced Spectral Mammography and Digital Breast Tomosynthesis.
Our breast screening service operates over 4 sites, the Nottingham Breast Institute, Ropewalk House and at our 2 mobile units which currently rotate through 6 locations within Nottinghamshire. You will rotate to each of these locations whilst supporting and supervising our assistant practitioners.
Our department converted to full digital imaging in 2013 and had a new PACS system installed in Autumn 2015. We actively encourage and support Continuous Professional Development activities, supporting poster submissions to the Symposium Mammographicum, and are actively involved in research trials and clinical evaluations.
You will hold a BSc in Radiography or the Diploma of the College of Radiographers and have current radiographic experience. You will also be registered with the Health Care Professions Council. Preferably you will also hold the College of Radiographers’ Postgraduate Award in Mammography Practice or equivalent, but candidates without a mammography qualification may still apply. If appointed would be expected to successfully complete the required course of study. Whilst in training you would be paid in accordance with ANNEX U of Agenda for Change Terms and Conditions.
Working hours are 08:30 until 17:00 and a full UK driving license and car use is essential.
Mammography posts have a gendered protected character, due to the nature of the work. This is an occupational requirement, as a result the post is exempt under section 9; part 1 of the Equality Act 2010 and therefore only female applicants should apply.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
