Band 6 Radiotherapy Radiographer Applications are invited from enthusiastic and suitably experienced Therapy Radiographers who would like to continue the development of their Radiotherapy expertise and practice by joining the highly motivated team at the Exeter Oncology Centre. The department has three matched Varian iX Linacs with CBCT, a Toshiba Wide Bore CT scanner, Prosoma virtual simulation, an Eclipse planning system and a Varian Acuity simulator to support the planning and delivery of external beam treatment. A High Dose Rate Brachytherapy service provides treatment for urological, gynaecological, Upper GI, Lung and Skin cancers. Superficial Radiotherapy is provided using 100KV SXR and we are working toward the introduction of 'Papillon' for the treatment of Anal Cancer.

The department has a well-established IMRT programme and a rapidly developing IGRT programme. We have recently introduced Radiographer-led Breast mark up and are actively involved in a broad range of national Radiotherapy clinical trials. We are accredited to the ISO 9001: 2015 standard.

The post holder will be required to participate in the day to day provision of safe and accurate external beam treatment activities. They will be involved in the delivery of VMAT, IGRT, fiducial marker matching and DIBH techniques and in the development and implementation of new techniques. They will also rotate through other areas of the department, including pre-treatment and Brachytherapy, allowing the opportunity to develop a broad range of clinical Radiotherapy experience. The post holder will be required to deputise for the Sectional Lead Radiographer as the need arises, and they will supervise subordinate staff, assume full responsibility for Assistant Practitioners when rostered to work alongside them and participate in student training.

They will be required to participate in early and late shift working patterns, the on-call rota for emergency referrals and the delivery of CHART Radiotherapy.

Our vision is to provide safe, high quality seamless services delivered with courtesy and respect. To achieve our vision we expect all our staff to uphold our Trust values.

Our Trust values are: Honesty, Openness & Integrity Fairness Inclusion & Collaboration Respect & Dignity

***Preference will be given to staff with ‘Priority’ and 'At Risk' status including NHS At Risk staff throughout Devon.***
