Leeds is a vibrant city and offers something for every interest and lifestyle. It is the perfect place to build a successful career.  The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the largest NHS trusts in the UK and employs over 18,000 staff across seven hospitals on six sites.  Interested individuals can look forward to the challenges that a position working as a Radiographer in one of the largest NHS trusts in the UK will bring.

Leeds Radiology offers diagnostic imaging to a wide variety of clinical specialities including Paediatrics, Cardiology, Neurosurgery, Transplant Surgery, Oral & Maxillofacial, Gastro-Intestinal, Elderly Medicine, Urology, Renal and Hepatology.  The Leeds General Infirmary is home to the region’s Major Trauma Centre and the St James’s Institute of Oncology is housed in the state of the art Bexley Wing.  ‘Hospitals of the Future’ is an exciting project currently underway which involves the building of two new hospitals at Leeds General Infirmary.   The buildings will deliver a range of adult health services and be the brand-new home for Leeds Children’s Hospital.

Opportunities in Leeds for Band 5 Radiographers

Benefits of a Band 5 Radiographer role at Leeds Teaching Hospitals include cross-site Plain Film rotation across two hospital sites, each offering different clinical specialities.

Our established mentorship scheme includes a structured induction programme, clinical competency training, one-to-one mentor support and regular review meetings to ensure you feel supported as you develop your skills, knowledge and experience.

Continuous professional development as a newly qualified Radiographer includes red dot with progression to primary commenting evaluation.  Training will also be provided to perform Radiographer commenting for nasogastric tube position.

Opportunities exist for experienced Band 5 Radiographers to rotate into other modalities alongside Plain Film.  Current Band 5 rotations include Cardiac Catheter Labs, Interventional Radiology and Nuclear Medicine.

Radiographer Modality Opportunities

Vacancy opportunities will arise to gain and expand experience within a specific modality of CT, MRI, Ultrasound, Interventional Radiology, Nuclear Medicine, Breast Screening or Breast Imaging.  As a tertiary referral centre, the experience gained within these is varied and extensive.

Band 5 Recruitment Event

The Leeds Radiology Band 5 Recruitment Event is held annually and will provide the opportunity to listen to representatives from across our Radiology team.  You will hear from our most recently qualified Radiographers who will share their experiences of starting their career in Leeds.  Topics for discussion will also include our comprehensive mentorship programme, clinical skills training and the support systems in place to assist your transition into your first Radiographer position.
