Job Title

Children’s Health Ireland have ongoing opportunities for Consultant Paediatric Radiologists across our hospital sites.

Purpose of the Role

The Consultant Paediatric Radiologist will form part of Children’s Health Irelands, paediatric radiology consultant team. This group includes consultants with a broad range of sub- specialty interests including neonatal imaging, musculoskeletal imaging, neuroimaging, interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, cancer imaging, body imaging, ENT imaging, chest imaging, foetal MRI and cardiac CT. It is envisaged that this post holder will have experience in, or a desire to develop expertise in, such a subspecialty area.

As clinical specialities develop throughout the hospital there will be a need for the consultant radiologists to expand the range of subspecialist imaging capabilities and it is expected that this post holder, along with the rest of the consultant group, will embrace continuing education to facilitate the development of relevant expertise.

The Consultant Paediatric Radiologist will join a cross-city team of radiologists and will contribute to the evolving role of the Paediatric Outpatients and Urgent Care Centre at Connolly as part of the overall vision for the Integrated Care Programme for Acute Paediatric Healthcare. This radiology service is always responsive to hospital, national and international developments in paediatrics and in paediatric radiology, and continues to evolve in tandem with the relevant national models of care.

Scope of the role

The paediatric radiology consultant group currently provides an imaging service to six sites (Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght, the National Maternity Hospital, the Coombe, and the Rotunda). At these sites, the group provides imaging services for some of the sickest children in Ireland.

The paediatric radiology department in the new children’s hospital on a campus shared with St James’s Hospital will be one of the largest in Europe. It is envisaged that the paediatricradiology service will continually assess, recognise and respond to changes in the accepted approaches to the imaging requirements and the clinical management of paediatric patients. The service also aims to facilitate the development of clinical and preclinical radiology research that will strengthen the provision of focused paediatric radiology services nationally and internationally.

The presence of paediatric radiology at the Paediatric Outpatients and Urgent Care Centre at Connolly (including PUCC Tallaght), will support these services through the provision of on- site radiography and ultrasound.
