Join us and be part of something bigger.

We have paved the way for excellence in Integrated Care and in July 2016 took the  pioneering step to form one of the first Integrated Care Organisations.  We now provide adult social care services alongside our established healthcare services, which has given us the chance to develop better, more joined up ways of working that deliver improved outcomes for the local community. 


This is a Consultant Radiology post required to support and develop diagnostic radiology services based at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust (SRFT) in the face of increasing demand. Sub-specialty interests can be supported and we would encourage any interested candidates to contact the Directorate management team for further discussion. In particular, a sub-specialty interest in GU, chest, nuclear medicine or trauma imaging would be welcomed.

You will join a supportive and welcoming team of 32 Consultant Radiologists and 1 Specialty Doctor. Further details of sub-specialty interests of the Consultant Radiologists can be found in the table below. Within the 32 Consultant Radiologists, 13 are dedicated Neuroradiologists who provide all of the neuroradiology reporting including on-call.

There will be a commitment to general radiology workload including Consultant of the Session (COS) and on-call. On-call is supported by a Radiology Specialty Trainee and there is the provision for remote imaging review. Overnight reporting is outsourced.

The job will include input into MDT meetings working with other colleagues. There will be the opportunity to develop sub-specialty interests within radiology depending on the aspirations of the applicant and the needs of the service.

Individual flexible working arrangements can be considered and we would encourage candidates to discuss directly with the Clinical Director for radiology.
