At UCLH (University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) our success starts with you.

We want you to come to UCLH, and stay at UCLH; all of our staff have been involved in developing our values.

We believe that UCLH is a better place for patients and staff alike. This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation and a tradition of innovation.

UCLH has two major strategic projects underway. On Grafton Way, we are building a facility which will be home to one of only two high energy NHS proton beam therapy centres, Europe’s largest centre for the treatment of blood disorders and a hyper modern surgery service.  Close by on Huntley Street we are developing the new Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospitals. Replacing the current hospitals on Grays’ Inn Road, this development will mean we can provide multidisciplinary care to our dental and ENT patients in a modern environment. Our Grafton Way facility is due to open in 2020, with Huntley Street opening in 2019.

NHS staff survey results from 2016, UCLH has been named one of the ten best performing non-specialist trusts against the following statement: “If a friend of relative needed treatment I would be happy with the standard of care provided by this organisation”.

Full Time Lead Superintendent Radiographer (Chest Reporting)

We are looking for a full time (37.5 hours per week) reporting radiographer to join our Find and Treat Mobile TB health unit undertaking a unique and rewarding role providing a specialist diagnostic service.

Find&Treat is the UK’s one and only dedicated mobile screening and outreach service to tackle TB. The service spans the TB care pathway from awareness raising, active case finding using digital mobile chest radiography, and supporting completion of diagnostic investigations and treatment.  The populations targeted by the mobile health unit include homeless people, drug and alcohol users, prisoners and vulnerable migrants. Screening is offered on a voluntary basis to people who are accessing services in the community. Additionally the unit is requested to support the investigation of potential TB outbreaks in congregate settings including residential care facilities, factories, schools and colleges.

The post holder will be responsible for a variable caseload of hard-to-reach patients, carrying out the appropriate diagnostic procedures to support the diagnosis of complex conditions and organising onward referral to the Find&Treat outreach team.  The post holder will also be responsible for identifying other conditions and working with the outreach team to organise onward care.

You will be a highly committed and experienced specialist diagnostic practitioner with the skills and ability to work in the community with a range of service users and patients. You will have excellent engagement and communication skills and most importantly an empathy and insight into the needs of the population served. Experience of working with hard to reach groups would be an advantage.

The post-holder is required to work flexibly across London and occasionally in other areas of the country as required.
