The Hospital prides itself on a large cancer service, diagnosing and treating bronchogenic cancer alongside being a tertiary referral centre for complex cases in both malignant and benign disease.

The post will have a commitment to support a range of diagnostic services such as CT, MRI, and plain film reporting and ultrasound examinations. The post holder will be expected to participate in under-graduate and post-graduate teaching and training and there will be opportunities for research.
The Trust is a Major Trauma Centre, the first Radiology Centre in the East Midlands Radiology Consortium and a Tertiary referral centre for Oncology, HPB, GI, Sarcoma, Urology and Thoracic services.
