An exciting opportunity has arisen to appoint to a new post in the Nuclear Medicine Section, part of the Medical Physics & Clinical Engineering Department at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.

We are seeking a highly experienced and motivated technologist to take on the role of Nuclear Medicine Service Lead. The successful applicant will be expected to optimise and develop the existing diagnostic, molecular radionuclide therapy and bone densitometry services. S/he will join a multi-disciplinary team of administrative staff, technologists, radiographers, scientists and radiologists.

The Nuclear Medicine Section comprises approximately 35 individuals working between two sites (Queen’s Medical Centre and Nottingham City Hospital) and operates 4 gamma cameras (three of which are SPECT/CT), 3 bone densitometers, networked HERMES workstations and radiopharmacy service. The service also manages the Nottingham PET/CT Centre.

The Nuclear Medicine clinics perform a comprehensive range of diagnostic imaging and non-imaging investigations (these include nuclear cardiology, oncology, paediatrics, gastroenterology and orthopaedics) and also provide a growing molecular radionuclide therapy service (Iodine-131, Radium-223 and SIRT).

The Bone Densitometry Clinic performs a full range of bone densitometry investigations on behalf of various specialties within the Trust and for GPs, and is part of a fracture liaison service for the assessment and treatment of older patients with low trauma fractures.
