Closing Date: 16th August 2019 @ 1.00 pm

Details: We are seeking to recruit a Senior Radiographer (Ultrasound) to work alongside our two Orthopaedic
Paediatric Consultants in developing the National baby hip screening programme in our Out-Patients
Department. The Department currently performs all ultrasound hip scans on at risk babies at 4-6 weeks
of age, using the Graf method. The new appointee will receive external recognised training in this
technique and perform hip ultrasound scans in the clinic, which currently occur twice per week.
The Integrated Care Programme for Children (ICP) in Ireland has invested funds in setting up a selected
ultrasound screening programme for infants at risk of developing DDH. Early diagnosis leads to earlier,
less invasive treatment with a much greater rate of success. The service is already in operation
throughout the country since 2018, with a co-ordinator ensuring that the recommended standards are
being met across the country. The Senior Radiographer (Ultrasound) will be the project lead with
responsibility for drawing up a DDH screening policy, co-ordinating the stakeholders, auditing the
service and carrying out the necessary administrative work.
The appointee will also take part in the general X-ray Department rotation. The Department provides
radiology services for the hospital specialties e.g. Elective Orthopaedic, ENT, Oncology and Pain
Medicine, as well as serving GP patients. The Radiology Department has 6 radiologists and 14
radiographers and is located in the heart of Cork city.
