The Nuclear Medicine & PET-CT Department at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is looking to appoint an experienced Senior Clinical Technologist or Radiographer.

You will join a friendly and inclusive multidisciplinary team of clinical technologists/radiographers, scientists, nurses, physicians and clerical staff providing support services at King’s at Denmark Hill. The department houses a GE Discovery 710 PET-CT scanner, a Siemens Symbia T16 SPECT-CT scanner, a Philips Skylight gamma camera (due to be replaced with a second SPECT-CT), a DEXA scanning service and a non-imaging in-vitro service. The department has a significant commitment to radionuclide therapy in collaboration with other clinical departments (including benign and malignant thyroid disease, PRRT and SIRT) and is a recognised centre of excellence in the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumours.

You must be eligible for the UK Register of Clinical Technologists or an HCPC-registered radiographer (or equivalent), with at least 3 years’ postgraduate experience of working in clinical nuclear medicine or PET-CT. Applications from general radiographers without any nuclear medicine experience will not be accepted.

The technologist/radiographer staff work to a flexible rota currently covering 8am-6pm Mon-Fri opening hours. Prior experience of working with hybrid imaging (SPECT-CT or PET-CT) is essential. You will undertake daily operational management duties as appropriate at Band 7 level. You will be required to teach, supervise and appraise more junior staff, to deputise for the Service Manager/Chief Tech, and to collaborate with other staff members in clinical audit and service development.

You will be expected to carry out a comprehensive range of diagnostic procedures consistent with working in a large teaching hospital including conventional Nuclear Medicine studies, as well as SPECT-CT and PET-CT. You will also undertake a wide range of therapy-related imaging procedures. Underpinning the department is a commitment to clinical research and audit for the development and implementation of new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques and dosimetry. In return for your commitment to us we will provide on-going support for your continuing professional development, including opportunities to attend training days & seminars and present at national & international conferences.

King’s is one of London's largest and busiest teaching hospitals but manages to maintain a friendly, challenging and stimulating work environment with a superb team spirit. We have world-renowned expertise in several areas including liver disease, haemato-oncology, critical care, diabetes and neurosciences, with a large orthopaedics service and one of the four major trauma centres in London. This position is based at King’s College Hospital in vibrant and cosmopolitan Denmark Hill in South London (Zone 2) which has excellent transport links (including the London Overground line serving the hospital) in and out of central, south & east London and South East England, and is close to amenities and nightlife in the areas of Camberwell and Brixton.

Applicants are encouraged to arrange a departmental visit prior to interviewing.
