Opportunities for Consultant Radiologists

Various Locations throughout Scotland

Scotland has long enriched the field of medicine, both in terms of practice and research, and it has a particularly proud history in the field of radiology. The first radiology clinic in the world was opened at Glasgow Royal Infirmary in 1896 and the first full body MRI scanner was developed at Aberdeen University.

Radiology services in Scotland have advanced enormously in the last few years with significant investment in the National PACS system (Picture Archiving and Communication System) and in imaging equipment. Services are delivered predominantly through individual NHS Health Boards.

Within Scotland, the NHS enjoys a distinctly Scottish identity. Many international medical graduates have been drawn to Scotland by the career opportunities presented by working within the National Health Service (NHS). There are few people in Scotland today whose life has not been touched in some way by the NHS, which remains committed to delivering patient-centred care, free at the point of delivery. Through our ambitious Health and Social Care Delivery Plan we are actively designing a service fit for future needs, which is embodied in the triple-aim of Better Health, Better Care and Better Value.

NHS Scotland currently employs a workforce of over 162,500 staff across Acute, Primary Care, Community and Health and Social Care Partnerships with many of our staff working across our 274 hospitals, which include large teaching centres, district general hospitals and smaller community based hospitals. Approximately £11.9 billion (GBP) is spent on health and social care annually.

Serving a population of 5.3 million, equitable access to a robust quality and timely diagnostic imaging services is vital for clinicians involved in both emergency and elective care to ensure optimal outcomes for their patients.
