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”.

1 permanent and 1 fixed term position avaliable until the 28th April 2019

University College Hospital is part of the UCLH NHS Foundation Trust which has a reputation for innovation, research and providing excellent patient-focused care. The hospital is situated in the heart of the West end within easy reach of high street shops and the many amenities that London has to offer.

The Trust is one of the designated Hyper-Acute Stroke Units in London and imaging will form an integral part of the patient pathway. The UCH Imaging Department has a comprehensive range of state of the art equipment, including 4 MRI, 3 CT scanners, a digital Interventional Suite and 9 digital X-ray rooms all fully integrated with PACS.

The CT service is expanding next year with the opening of a new scanner as part of the Emergency department re-development and installation of a new PACS/RIS system is planned for Sept 2017.

We have an exciting opportunity for enthusiastic radiographers to join our forward-thinking and friendly department in the heart of Central London.

As we offer a wide range of services, this is an excellent opportunity to learn new clinical skills and broaden your current skill base whilst working in a supportive team. 

As a department, we are very supportive of role development; currently we have radiographers reporting in Axial/Appendicular, Chest, Abdo,  Fluoro and expanding to MRI.

We are also keen to facilitate continual professional development for staff with many available in-house training opportunities.

We are looking to recruit radiographers with sophisticated communication skills and a patient-centred approach. You will need to have significant experience in CT scanning and extensive general radiographic experience. The successful candidates will gain experience in a wide range of general radiography including interventional radiography and CT.

You will also be actively involved in the teaching of junior staff and assessment of student radiographers whilst on clinical placement.

Participation in the extended working day and OOH rota is essential.
