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.
