Are you passionate about supporting the educational and training development of radiographers and are wanting to support enhanced, advanced and consultant level practice at a strategic level?

Health Education England (HEE) has an opportunity for aspiring and current consultant radiographers (Diagnostic or Therapeutic) to join the national cancer and diagnostic programme team.  These clinical fellow roles provide a unique opportunity to work at a strategic level and drive forward the awareness, understanding and development of enhanced, advanced and consultant levels of practice within radiography.  The fellows will collaboratively deliver a range of initiatives that underpin HEE’s national programme deliverables at a regional and sub-regional level whilst working and providing a pivotal link to the many different stakeholders who are involved within this agenda.

The clinical fellows will work collaboratively to support different initiatives and projects for each level of practice and will use their knowledge, expertise and leadership to build and develop the infrastructure required to fully support the national team in achieving this ambition. 

An exciting opportunity

SoR professional officer Dr Tracy O’Regan, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to raise the visibility of radiographer leadership and to develop career pathways across England. We know that a range of people working at a senior level across the clinical imaging patient pathways and modalities, including ultrasound, mammography, etc..., therapeutics and oncology, will be welcomed to apply. SoR look forward to the appointment of the radiography clinical fellows and to working with them in 2023.”
