What should I know about radiology in the UK? 

One of the most in-demand specialties in the NHS, Radiology has rapidly advanced in recent years with technological innovations and widespread availability of sophisticated imaging techniques playing a major part. 

Both a diagnostic and interventional specialty, it has links to almost every other department in a hospital. 

Specialty training is five years in total (diagnostic, ST1-5) extended an extra year for those that sub-specialise in interventional radiology (ST1-6).

What can you expect to do as part of a typical working week in the NHS?

A typical working week as a diagnostic radiologist can include lists for ultrasound, IVUs, CT, MRI and barium/fluoroscopy lists in addition to plain film reporting and clinics. You can expect to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team on a 10 PA job plan with inclusion on the general radiology on-call.

Interventional radiologists can expect a variety of IR procedures to be included in addition to their diagnostic duties.


Did you know? As storage phosphor systems become more efficient and affordable, radiograms look set to become entirely digital and the ‘filmless’ radiology department will soon be a reality across the NHS.
