Irish Teaching Hospitals and Medical Universities receive great international acclaim & recognition throughout the world, doctors with experience and training in Ireland typically enjoy great success in terms of professional career development & job satisfaction.
This is a new post and is in addition to the 6.5 full time equivalents (FTE) Consultant Radiologists. The department consists of 5.5 FTE General Radiologists with subspecialist interests, and a further Radiologist covering the plain film work.
The Mammography Department is currently staffed by 2 Consultant Radiologists performing 5 sessions. Ideally the successful applicant will minimally have 2 sessions in mammography.
The hospital has a certain amount of flexibility with this post as long as the essential core component in breast radiology is fulfilled. This flexibility arranges from being able to provide a full or part-time breast post with no on-call to a more desirable configuration of a General Radiologist with an interest in breast imaging. They are specifically looking for the following skills in breast imaging and encourage the development of new ones.;-
• Diagnostic mammography ultrasound and biopsy.
• Stereotactic vacuum assisted biopsy.
• Wire localisation.
• Breast MRI, Contrast Mammography and Tomosynthesis.
• Screening mammography.
The general component of the job could be plain film reporting, general cross sectional imaging and CT, MRI or ultrasound. Ideally the candidate would be able to perform sufficient general imaging to provide an on-call service and this would be a 1 in 6.5 with internal cover attracting a session in lieu which could be combined with a flexible SPA to create one day per week off site.
We have previously appointed dynamic and enthusiastic Breast Surgeon, who provides both mastectomy and a full reconstruction service.
The Mammography Department is currently separated from the main department. There is a reporting room, an Ultrasound and Diagnostic Suite, and a new GE Mammography Suite with Tomosynthesis and vacuum assisted biopsy.
The department is externally inspected and accredited as a Screening Unit and the whole department is currently accredited. There is a thriving private practice which is an accepted and expected part of the job.
This job description is intended as a guide to the general scope of duties and is not intended to be definitive or restrictive. It is expected that some of the duties will change over time and this description will be subject to review in consultation with the post holder.
• regular commitments to ward based teaching of undergraduates.
• participation in the lecture programmes for 2nd and 4th & 5th year medical students.
• teaching of other groups as required including other specialty juniors and specialist nurses.
A formal job plan will be agreed between the appointee, the Operational Medical Director and Lead Radiology: Mammography Consultant, on behalf of the Trust’s Medical Director, based on the provisional timetable. This will be signed by the Chief Executive and will be effective from the commencement date of the appointment.
It will be reviewed at 3 months & thereafter annually or at any time, but no less than 3 months after a previous review, as requested by the appointee, Operational Medical Director or Clinical Lead & adjusted accordingly to the agreement of both parties.
All consultants have a 10 PA contract for public work which may be worked flexibly to allow private practice on and off site during the normal working week and making up time spent on public work during early mornings, evenings or weekends.
Specific duties and time-tabling will be subject to an annual Job-plan review. Below is a sample timetable for this role, it must be emphasised however that this timetable may be subject to change to meet the needs of the department and will be finalised with the successful appointee.
This will include 7.0 fixed sessions of DCC such as CT, MRI, US, Intervention, Specials, Mammography, MDT, Admin list, 2 SPA sessions and 1 session in lieu of on call (Depending on skills etc.). The hospital are arranging the timetable to incorporate an extended day which allows the consultant 1 day a week off site. The day will be extended with either 8am start or 7pm finish. The extended sessions will be to cover “Cold CT/MRI reporting”. An example is set out below. A list of current meetings is also set out. Each meeting is envisaged to have a lead and second radiologist. The time of these meetings may change but the principle of sufficient time for preparation has been incorporated.
If the post holder ends up doing a “pure” breast job and does not participate in the on call rota then there will be no lieu sessions. There would be 7.5DCC:2.5SPA of which 1.5SPA off site would be feasible.
