• Patient-focused care and make a difference in the community!
• Friendly and Professional team
This Consultant Radiologist role is different from where you’ve just come from, and we bet you’ll love it! This is a fulfilling role, a rewarding team and a great location to be based. 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 have left your care, which certainly does not happen in a larger hospital!
