This is a fantastic opportunity to lead a specialised clinical service mainly based at Birmingham Children’s Hospital (BCH) but within the team at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB).
We are seeking a Paediatric Specialist Technologist to take the clinical lead and work with radiologists, consultants, nursing and radiography staff to provide a world class service. The unit took delivery of a new SPECT CT system a year ago and the workload has diversified and will continue to do so as new techniques and protocols are adopted. The Nuclear Medicine department based on the Queen Elizabeth Hospital site in Edgbaston includes the Birmingham PET Centre and there will be an opportunity to gain experience here if desired. We have an extensive range of imaging and non-imaging equipment and an on-site Radiopharmacy.
The post-holder is a member of a multidisciplinary team that provides diagnostic procedures and services directly to patients. Their primary responsibility is to lead the BCH service, but they will also be expected to perform some regular Nuclear Medicine scanning and possibly PET/CT. This will involve acting as RPS, administration of radioactive materials; acquisition of imaging data, analysing and calculating results and disposal of radioactive waste material (as well as submitting disposal figures to the EA). As a senior member of staff they will be required to work unsupervised at all times and also to provide direct and indirect supervision to more junior staff.
The post holder will organise and deliver the training needs of the department, assessing theoretical and practical competences.
They will have operational responsibilities for Paediatric Nuclear Medicine, will lead the expansion and assist with the growth of the service, ensuring that innovation, new techniques and up to date processes are carried out to provide a high quality service for our patients
