We are looking for a team player with an innovative and dynamic approach who can embrace new ways of working.

We already have an active and nationally recognised ‘9-5’ mechanical thrombectomy service and are the first centre in the country to up skill vascular radiologists to perform the procedure.

This post involves full-time work within the Stroke service and any participation in the Acute General Medical rota is negotiable.
