Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) is the leading Trust for teaching, research and specialist services in the North West of England.

Nuclear Medicine is at the forefront of modern, high tech medicine and the department at Manchester is one of the largest centres in the country. This is a great opportunity to join a world class team, working in advanced high technology diagnostic imaging. Patients are referred from throughout the region for our highly specialised procedures. The department is equipped with two SPECT-CT scanners, two additional SPECT scanners, a mobile gamma scanner and a PET-CT scanner which has just been upgraded with the latest state of the art digital system. An on-site radiopharmacy supplies the departments requirements for tracers and the department is now linked to the nuclear medicine service at Wythenshawe Hospital.

The department strives for excellence in delivering first class patient care and we are looking to recruit a like minded individual. Appointment as either a clinical technologist or radiographer will depend on qualifications and previous training.

You will play an important part in the multi-disciplinary team in obtaining valuable diagnostic information that will help us to treat patients with many different conditions. Your careful and sensitive attention to detail will contribute to their clinical care.

You should have a degree in Radiography or clinical technology, excellent communication skills along with the ability to work as part of team. Previous experience working in either nuclear medicine or radiology would be advantageous however applications from science graduates will be considered where appropriate training would be supported.

You will be encouraged to develop your skills supported with training opportunities and you would be encouraged to undertake appropriate studies to provide you with a qualification in nuclear medicine imaging where appropriate.
