An exciting opportunity has arisen for a qualified sonographer to join the forward thinking ultrasound team of the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. Developments within the local community have given us the opportunity to expand the ultrasound service, particularly with the advent of our service expansion into GP practices in the region.

The ultrasound department within the Trust is managed as an obstetric and a non-obstetric team, with sonographers having the opportunity to specialise into a specific area or keep skills in both. This new post will add to the dynamics of the team. The successful applicant will join the core team rotating through all clinical areas but in time will have the opportunity to develop specialist skills in their preferred aspect of ultrasound imaging, for example, obstetrics or general medical including abdominal, musculo-skeletal, paediatrics, interventional work or contrast enhanced imaging.

You will be working with the team of friendly, dedicated and hardworking sonographers within the ultrasound department. You will work in all sites where ultrasound services are provided by Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. The sonographers in Hull have always been at the leading edge of service developments such as our infertility work and independent reporting skills. Our community ultrasound services have expanded and we are proud to have developed a diagnostic and clinical management advice service within the primary sector.

The ultrasound department is committed to training and has close links with the Hull & York Medical School and the School of Healthcare at Leeds University as well as BMUS and the specialist interest groups in the SCOR. Role extension, CPD, KSF and flexible working are actively supported.

The core hours of the department are 8.00am through to 7.30pm with regular weekend and bank holiday working.

Dependent upon experience the successful applicant may commence the post under Annex 21 of the Agenda for Change to support a managed capability development period as the trainee commences work as a newly qualified sonographer.
