Radiographer/Sonographer

Falkland Islands

Starting Salery: £34,682 - £42,841

Closing date for receipt of applications is Monday 13 February 2017.  

The Falkland Islands are a unique and dramatically beautiful environment set in the South Atlantic Ocean. We are offering an exciting opportunity for a dual qualified Radiographer / Sonographer who would like to live and contribute to this friendly community.  The Falkland Islands benefits from unique wildlife, negligible pollution, low crime rates, the absence of traffic jams, a varied social calendar and the close proximity of South America and Antarctica as holiday destinations.

Time to care

Our hospital in Stanley has 29 beds and provides in-patient care to all patients needing admission, whatever their age or condition. This will include local residents, military personnel, visiting tourists and foreign nationals.  The hospital caseload includes all aspects of maternity care, serious illnesses, trauma, coronary conditions, mental health problems, emergency and elective surgery, palliative and terminal care.  We have a theatre team here and also have a programme of visiting specialists who provide short 3-7 day visits including out patients and surgical interventions.  Our clinical standards are high.  We have zero hospital acquired infections and zero preventable pressure sores.  This is due to the excellent standard of care we provide. 

This post requires an experienced person who is able to work alone and cover all aspects of the work including emergencies. Working as the sole practitioner in this small Island hospital is both challenging and rewarding.  There will be an on-call commitment (paid). Radiology reporting is done off-site so there is some related administration.  You will be working in a supportive and friendly team, in a hospital that take great pride in providing excellent clinical care.  You will find a varied and interesting role here, and an opportunity to provide excellent care for your patients.
