Do you want to be involved in all aspects of CT and you have a willingness to learn ? Are you an existing experienced CT radiographer or a Band 5 radiographer wanting to train further and specialise in CT?

if so then we would be keen to hear from you.

We currently have an exciting opportunity for 2 Radiographers to join our dedicated, passionate and motivated team within the CT departments in the Imaging Directorate at this busy Acute Teaching Foundation Trust. This is an exciting time for us as we are currently installing a Dual energy Siemens CT scanner at Preston and a new Siemens CT scanner at Chorley to supplement the existing Phillips CT scanner in the CT department and in the ED Major Trauma centre unit - both at Preston

We are a regional centre for Lancashire for a number of specialties including Oncology, Neurosurgery , Renal, Major Trauma and Vascular, and this is an excellent chance to be involved in CT scanning for these specialist areas. We also have an innovative Post Mortem CT service on site located adjacent to the mortuary and if interested there would be the chance for a limited rotation through this area.

You would work within an expanding and forward thinking CT team led by an Operational CT lead radiographer and a Clinical Quality CT Lead radiographer and an experience Post Mortem/Forensic Lead radiographer in the PMCT.

The team provides a 24/7 service and flexible working plans are in place. There are wide variety of duties including weekends, evenings and overnight shift patterns and any shift patters will be considered including permanent nights or weekends. 

A full induction and training plan and individual support is in place and we encourage staff development into cardiac CT, CTC and post mortem scanning. Advanced Practice in a wide range of role development/extension opportunities and post graduate study is well established in the Radiology directorate. LTHTR is a Teaching hospital with development and leadership programmes which all staff can and are encouraged to access. We have a highly regarded research department and radiographers will have the opportunity to be involved in clinical academic research roles if they wish.
