We have miles of unspoilt coastline on our doorstep, attractive commuter towns, picturesque villages and stunning countryside all within easy reach.

Shops, bars, restaurants, museums, galleries, a World Heritage listed waterfront and, of course, two Premiership football teams makes this a destination for travellers from across the world.

The University of Liverpool has awarded us the status of University Clinical Education Centre in recognition of the high standard of training provided for students on placement to the Trust.

We pride ourselves in providing safe, clean and friendly care, and recruit to our SCOPE values. We also offer a range of family friendly options to staff.

General Diagnostic Imaging Services, including rotation through the CT department.

We are seeking a highly motivated, flexible and enthusiastic Band 6 Radiographer to join our friendly Imaging team in these busy District General Hospitals.

This post will offer experience in trauma, theatres and mobiles, paediatrics as well as fluoroscopy and CT. The Regional Spinal Injuries Unit is also on the Southport site.

At Southport we operate a 24/7 out of hour flexible working shift pattern where 2/3 staff work together covering acute adult A+E/trauma, in-patients, spinal injuries and CT. This flexible working pattern enables staff to plan ahead as it incorporates regular set days off duty.

We actively encourage, and provide opportunities for, continuous professional development and role extension. The departments utilise CR and DR systems for all plain film imaging and have a well - established Trust wide PACS system.We have an on-going major equipment replacement programme in partnership with GE Healthcare. Staff can be assured, therefore, that they will be working with new equipment/technology in all areas of Radiology.

The department is also a centre for student training and assessment.

Although experience in CT scanning would be advantageous full training will be provided in this modality.

Applicants must have significant experience in all aspects of general radiographic procedures and an up to date knowledge of current trends in techniques including A+E, Orthopaedic, In-Patient and Mobile and Theatre Radiography.
