North Wales has something for everyone, with access to the beautiful Snowdonia National Park and the towns/cities of North Wales and North West England. It is an excellent environment to consider your future balance between a rewarding career and lifestyle pursuits.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, provides a comprehensive radiology service in North Wales from three acute sites and a range of imaging from a network of community hospitals, is seeking applications from enthusiastic and committed qualified ‘sonographers’ to become a member of its ‘North Wales Radiology Ultrasound Team’ based in the Wrexham Maelor Hospital.

The sonographer will be independently responsible for carrying out and reporting on specialised ultrasound examinations to a high standard and in a professional manner, working to departmental guidelines whilst being accountable for their own actions and taking part in peer review audits. Excellent clinical skills, experience and a post graduate ultrasound qualification are essential.

In addition to obstetric and gynaecological scanning, experience across a wide range of examinations is desirable including abdomen and small parts. MSK and/or vascular experience would be an advantage.

You will work closely with the sonographers, senior colleagues and radiologists across North Wales, to develop and maximise the US service, ensuring a patient focused, safe, effective and efficient service that is able to meet the current and future needs of the wider Health Board and local population. The US service operates over seven days across a selection of acute and community ultrasound departments within the organisation.

Please note that applicants who are successfully shortlisted will be required to attend an on-site face to face interview and hands on practical assessment, this will take into account social distancing measures.

BCUHB Radiology are committed to staff development and training and over the past few years have successfully trained multiple staff across a number of areas including CT / MRI / Ultrasound / Reporting / Nuclear Medicine / Mammography.

Please note, there will be an in person / face to face assessment of practical ultrasound scanning technique and patient care as part of the interview. This will be performed in line with latest government social distancing guidance.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
