Southampton Consultant Post

Posted by Howard Portess on February 6, 2017 at 5:05 PM Comments comments (0)

We are looking for motivated and caring individuals to join the dedicated Paediatric Radiology team at the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust. This post is eligible for a recruitment and retention incentive of £10,000 (pro rata) payable on joining the Trust (Terms & Conditions apply). In recognition of the national shortage of paediatric radiologists, this will be negotiated annually until we are fully staffed.


Southampton Children's Hospital is part of University Hospital Southampton and is a major centre for specialist paediatric services in the south of England, providing acute specialist care to our local population in Southampton and wider region, including the Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands. We are a major paediatric trauma centre and part of the Oxford and Southampton Children's Hospital Network (cardiac, critical care, neuroscience, orthopaedics, rehabilitation and transitional care). The Hospital is a major teaching centre and is the base for the Wessex Radiology Training Scheme. Wessex School of Radiology has recently ranked top out of the 17 UK schools of Radiology for trainee satisfaction and clinical supervision following the recent GMC survey.


Paediatric Radiology is an essential component of the Southampton Children's Hospital and we have exciting plans to grow the service to continue to provide an excellent tertiary service and advice our local DGHs. The successful candidates will be required to have subspecialist training in Paediatric Radiology and be able to participate fully in the varied work of the department including the dedicated on-call rota. They will be encouraged to develop their area of subspecialist interest in collaboration with their colleagues.


If you are interested in this post and would like to gain further information, please contact either:


Dr Howard Portess (Lead Consultant Paediatric Radiologist) on 023 8120 5261 or email [email protected], or Dr Mark Griffiths (Consultant Paediatric Radiologist) on 023 8120 6106 or email [email protected]


Potential applicants are welcome to visit the department to discuss this post.


Online applications via the NHSjobs website will close on 12th March 2017.

Sheffield Consultant Post

Posted by David Horton on January 18, 2017 at 2:25 PM Comments comments (0)

We are looking for an enthusiastic radiologist with general paediatric training and special interests to join our team of 7. This post is in part due to retirement of a colleague, but also in response to the development of services. Specialisation in most areas can be accommodated and it is suggested that interested candidates explore this further in person.

 Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust is a standalone dedicated children’s hospital trust and provides acute and specialist services combined with community and mental health care.

The department serves the wide range of specialist activity within the trust and has a full range of dedicated on-site equipment: CR, DR, fluoroscopy, USS, DEXA, CT, Gamma camera, 1.5T MRI and 3T MRI which has intra-operative capability. Under way this year we have replacement of the gamma camera with CT SPECT and replacement of the 1.5T MRI. Development of fluoroscopy with a multipurpose C Arm is also in progress which will enhance our interventional capacity.

Sheffield Children’s Hospital is a major trauma centre. Other areas with large clinical and research activity include oncology, gastroenterology, respiratory medicine, rheumatology, metabolic bone disease and orthopaedics. We also provide neonatal radiology for the supra-district neonatal intensive care at the Jessop Wing of the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, and paediatric radiology to local DGHs.

There is an on-call commitment of 1 in 7 to cover Sheffield Children’s Hospital and Jessop Neonatal Intensive Care at the Hallamshire Hospital.

 The Hospital is situated in the lively city of Sheffield on the edge of the Peak District National Park.

 Enquiries and to arrange informal visits please contact Dr Penny Broadley, Clinical Lead for Radiology, [email protected] or 0114 271 7166.

 Applications via NHS jobs from February 6th 2017.

Perinatal Radiology Research Fellowship

Posted by David Horton on August 5, 2016 at 10:50 AM Comments comments (0)

We have a very busy fetal and neonatal MR clinical research imaging programme. This mainly involves brain imaging but the fetal programme has a larger remit to include the fetal body and placenta. We have a research radiology fellow position available in neonatal and fetal MR imaging from August. This might suit someone wanting to gain both clinical and research experience prior to consultant post or prior to sub specialty training. The vacancy has arisen as one of our current fellows is starting subspec. neuroradiology training.

Locum Needed

Posted by David Horton on May 19, 2016 at 7:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Urgent need for locum cover at St George's London over the summer. 

We'd be interested in any one really who can work under indirect supervision or independently ie for a trainee would be paired up with a consultant who is doing another list but can supervise and would suit someone who wanted to bulk up their general/A&E experience/paediatric surgery/NNU esperience or a consultant willing to do any number of sessions including evening or weekend if that is when they are available (in the past that has worked will with people who want more income and don't have private practice).

Many thanks

IPR seminars

IPR Case of the Day

Posted by David Horton on May 16, 2016 at 6:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Those of us not in Chicago, here is a link to the case of the day at the meeting:

ONLINE CASE OF THE DAY AT IPR 2016, Chicago

A new web based online Case of the Day system has been developed for IPR. The web based online system will be available worldwide on almost any internet capable mobile device at http://ipr2016cod.org starting on Sunday morning, May 15th , 2016

There will be a one-time registration and then each day, users can log in and see six new cases per day in the various categories, together with a “Just for Fun” case which will not be included in the scores for the leaderboard. The new cases will be available each day 0700 – 1700 Chicago time.

After looking at the cases, enter an answer online. You can only enter one answer per case per day, but you can choose which cases you want to answer. The cases will be of moderate difficulty, so don’t expect to get them all correct!

On each subsequent day, once you log in, you will be able to see the correct answers to the previous day’s cases together with additional images, a brief discussion and references. You will also be able to see your personal performance compared with your peers and there will be a daily “leaderboard” listing the top 20 participants

This is a World Federation of Pediatric Radiology (WFPI) sponsored international pediatric radiology service open to any pediatric radiology interested person worldwide. You do not have to be present at the IPR meeting to participate.

We hope you enjoy this new learning system.

We are not able to award CME or similar certification for this event
