2 posts - full or part time
We are keen to recruit versatile, well-motivated and enthusiastic breast radiographers to join our multi-disciplinary team. Breast imaging is a challenging discipline of radiography giving scope for specialisation in an emotive and worthwhile diagnostic area of the profession. You will have a first rate practical imaging approach coupled with expert communication skills to enable you to work successfully with anxious women.
The screening service covers a population resident in North and Mid Essex, invited for screening to one of three digital mobile vans. Two separate symptomatic services; one at Colchester and the other in Chelmsford are also in operation. Rotation through all clinic types at both sites and on all mobile vans; including routine screening, one-stop rapid diagnostic clinics and screening assessment is included in this role.
The breast radiology and surgical teams are dynamic and enthusiastic supporters of advanced practice in the department. There is a good spread of skill mix with film reading radiographers and a clinical specialist post in place alongside radiographers and assistant practitioners.
The Post Graduate Award in Mammographic Studies/Certificate of Competence is essential for this post.
