The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the most successful teaching NHS Trusts in the country, with a reputation for high quality clinical care. The Radiology/ Nuclear Medicine Directorate at the NNUH is a major teaching department, incorporating one of only three dedicated Radiology Academies in the UK and accredited for teaching clinical Nuclear Medicine.

We currently have a rare and exciting opportunity for a Consultant Clinical Scientist to join us as the Head of Nuclear Medicine Physics Service and help shape the future of our service and strategy at a time of possible expansion.

Our PRIDE Values - People focused, Respect, Integrity, Dedication and Excellence support the delivery of our mission - “to provide every patient with the care we want for those we love the most” and as a senior manager within our directorate you will take the lead in ensuring that everyone works together to display our values.

We currently offer a wide range of Nuclear Medicine diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to patients across Norfolk and Suffolk and are exploring expanding our portfolio in the future. We have recently introduced SPECT/CT imaging and have well developed plans to replace our other two cameras with SPECT/CT machines next year and to significantly expand hybrid imaging as well as supporting an independent sector static PET/CT scanner. In addition, the Nuclear Medicine modality has a vision to obtain ISAS accreditation in the future, in line with the rest of the Imaging Department. We welcome applications from candidates who share our ambition to develop the breadth and quality of services we provide and will take a lead role in these projects.

You will play a significant part in delivering training and development to our existing teams and any new staff to the department as well as to Radiology Registrars from our Academy. As new techniques and advances are developed, you will take the lead in ensuring that our staff understand the benefits these can have for our patients and service.

You will also take responsibility for the radiological protection aspects of the service including radioactive materials and waste management and you and will be a core member of the Trust Radiation Protection Committee.

Our hospital is dedicated to creating leading research and development projects and you will be expected to play a significant role in this within the directory by encouraging, participating and directing research opportunities with the Nuclear Medicine field.

Why Norwich?

In Norwich a staggering 77% of people say they love their job. Although less than 2 hours from London and serviced by excellent transport links, Norwich is one of few UK cities that still retain a strong local identity and with that a strong sense of community – people walk down the street and say hello to each other, baristas remember our coffee order, you get to know about interesting local projects.

This strong sense of self along with excellent shopping, eating out, affordable house prices and excellent schooling is why Norwich has been ranked by the Guardian as the best city to work in.
