King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is part of King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC). King’s is one of UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with a turnover of nearly £1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 11,500 staff .

The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) site in Camberwell and the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in Bromley.

The Breast Radiology department is at the forefront of many developments in Breast Screening and diagnosis, managing the SE London Breast screening service as well as the King's breast symptomatic service at Denmark Hill, SE5 9RS and the Princess Royal University Hospital, Bromley, Kent. The unit has expanded over the past two years due to the age extension to the NHS Breast Screening Programme plus managing the screening in Bexley and Greenwich as well as the recent acquisition of the mammography service at the PRUH.

Due to recent changes within the department, a vacancy for a band 6 fixed term mammographer post has arisen within the Breast Radiology unit. We are fully digital and have several different mammography machines, including two modalities for 3D breast tomosynthesis which provide an interesting remit. We undertake many research trials in the Breast Radiology unit, and are at the forefront of evaluating new mammography techniques with which all radiographers take part.

You should be a radiographer registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and will hold either a BSc in radiography or the Diploma of the College of Radiographers. You should hold the Postgraduate Award in Mammography and have previous mammography experience. You will have excellent communication skills and a strong commitment to providing the best possible quality in both the technical and patient care aspects of your work. You will be flexible and able to travel between your base at King’s and mobile sites located throughout South East London.
