Join us and become part of the most engaged workforce of any NHS trust in England, according to the latest national NHS Staff Survey results – for the second year running.

You will be joining a dynamic and forward-looking organisation in the heart of the capital where you can develop your career and broaden your horizons.

We think you will enjoy working for us but you don’t have to take our word for it – 79% of staff who took part in the latest national NHS Staff Survey would recommend Guy’s and St Thomas’ as a place to work.

Due to internal and external career progression and team expansion, opportunities have arisen within the Nuclear Medicine Department for Band 5 Nuclear Medicine Technologists / Radiographers to join the multidisciplinary team at an exciting time. The service operates out of both Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospitals, providing diagnostic nuclear medicine imaging, osteoporosis screening and a comprehensive range of nuclear medicine therapies.

The department currently has 6 gamma cameras, including 3 SPECT/CTs, of which two have approved replacement in 2018, as well as 2 DEXA scanners at Guy’s, with an additional scanner being installed at St. Thomas’ in July 2018 for paediatric patients. Very close links are maintained with the PET Centre (operating two PET/CT and one PET/MR scanners) at St Thomas’ hospital and at the Cancer Centre at Guy’s hospital. The service is supported by its own Radiopharmacy and has an international reputation in teaching, research and development.

The post holder will work as part of a multi-disciplinary team and perform clinical Nuclear Medicine procedures whilst providing a high level of patient care. You will be responsible for ensuring all aspects of the patient experience are of the highest standard whilst adhering to appropriate legislation and Trust policy. 

As an integral member of the team, you will have opportunity to develop your career and have frequent mentoring sessions with more senior members of the team. The successful candidate will have a degree in Nuclear Medicine or Radiography or relevant experience. The positions will be varied and you will be expected to participate in most aspects of the service. You will be required to work in a timely, organised and caring manner to deliver the high quality, patient focused service that we expect. Participation in all aspects of Continuing Professional development is expected.

Registration with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) is required for Radiographers and registration with the Register of Clinical Technologists (RCT) or other appropriate professional body is supported to be obtained during your career development with us.

Please state if you have a HCPC qualification in your application statement.
