Breast MDTs are established, with cover in rotation between all the radiologists. The MDTs are a full sessional commitment with approximately 110 cases discussed at the main meeting and 30 cases discussed at the additional one.

About us

The Imaging Services are based on a strong ethos of Quality assurance, Audit, Evidence and Research. The UHNM Breast service has a long history of active research participation at national level and are currently recruiters for 10 national and international multicentre studies, with grants for 3 local trials in progress i.e. SLOANE, KORTUC and ATNEC. We are actively involved, as a pilot Trust, in assessment of AI in breast mammogram reading with support from a third-party AI company.

UHNM is a research active organisation. There are a large number of active oncology trials, across all cancer groups, many of which require radiology support. The Imaging Department is also building up a portfolio of imaging-based research aligning to the Trust priority to become a major clinical research centre and developing a research interest will be actively encouraged.

Successful applicants would be expected to actively engage in Governance and Audit and specifically contribute to the Department's on-going QSI accreditation.

Areas of recent service improvement include Contrast Enhanced Spectral Mammography, both ultrasound and stereo Magseed localisation, expansion of the VAB service, establishment of high- risk breast cancer screening and the addition of Tomosynthesis.

We are one of the top ranked trauma unit's in the country and a Consultant job here will provide great exposure to acute body radiology imaging.
