Consultant Diagnostic Neuroradiologist:

This is a new post to meet the needs of the expanding service within Neuroradiology at NUH and the King’s Mill Hospital (KMH) Radiology department and provide an on-call service at NUH.

This is a full-time NHS Consultant Neuroradiologist post for Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust and sessions at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (SHFT).

The post holder will also be part of a wider team of 51 consultant radiologists at NUH providing sub-specialty and general radiological services across the Trust.

The NUH Neuroradiology team undertakes a whole range of diagnostic interventional procedures pertaining to Neurosciences, Spinal and Head & Neck specialties. There is an active academic department headed by a Professor and supported by an Associate Professor of Department of Radiological Sciences.

An interest in Head and Neck imaging is desirable but not essential however applicants should have received formal Diagnostic Neuroradiological training.

The post holder will contribute to approximately 3PA of activity per week to SHFT at the King’s Mill Hospital site (KMH) while the rest of the time will be allocated to activity at NUH. This cross cover of KMH will be partly in conjunction with colleagues and there is scope for change of the exact proportion of time allocated to NUH:KMH activities in the future.

The Job Plan

The Consultant Diagnostic Neuroradiologist role will be providing sessions at associated radiology sites across Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) and Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (SHFT).

The split between Direct Clinical Care (DCC) and Supporting Professional Activity (SPA) for this post is 8.5  to 1.5 in-line with a new NUH Trust and KMH policy (6PA:4PA time split between NUH and KMH). The exact time spent at each site is to be negotiated.

The post-holder will be able to negotiate an increase in SPA allocation and a commensurate reduction of DCC commitment as they develop specific roles in the department, for example audit, research, teaching or management.

This post is deemed to be in Category A and an allowance is paid for being on-call, which is currently 5%.
