PHNT has been classed as ‘Outstanding’ overall as a Trust and ‘Good’ in our Outpatients and Diagnostic Services by the Care Quality Commission following a formal inspection of the trust in 2016 using its new more robust assessment methodology.
The successful candidates will be joining the Trust with excellent professional and academic links with the Peninsula Radiology Academy which boasts a first class modern education and conference facility. The trust is continuing with a period of transformation towards 7 day working in order to achieve our stated aim of excelling at patient care and providing services which make our local communities proud and which other providers strive to emulate. There has been significant financial investment into the Department within last three years to further upgrade its CT, MRI, Ultrasound and Radiography facilities with further investment planned over the next 3 years for a new Interventional suite, 3T MRI’s and a CT in the Emergency Department commencing in the Spring of 2017. PHNT also has a fixed PET-CT scanner on site. All radiologists are provided with personal office equipped with individual PACS workstation and high speed internet access. The Department encourages flexible working or annualised job plan if any candidate wishes to work flexibly due to their personal circumstances. At present the department would most benefit if any prospective candidate has special interest in Interventional Radiology (both neuro and non neuro), Breast and Uro-Radiology.
