Full job description

The Trust is committed to working closely with its partners in the community to place patients’ needs at the centre of its services. The Trust’s primary aim is to provide the right care, in the right place and at the right time to the highest standards.

Queen’s Hospital is situated close to the A12, within walking distance of Romford British Rail Station and local amenities. King George Hospital is situated in Barley Lane, Goodmayes with good transport links.

The Radiology departments provides a wide range of imaging services including fully digital general x-ray department, CT, MRI, Neuro and Vascular Interventional Radiology, Cardiac Angiography, Dexa and Ultrasound.

We are looking for suitably qualified staff to perform the duties of a radiographic support worker; to provide support to radiologists, radiographers and to maintain smooth patient flows throughout the department. The support worker should be able to undertake a number of duties that support the activities of the MRI department. You will be required to work flexibly – weekday /weekend and out of hour duties, we are a 7-day working department (flexible working pattern to support service needs). These duties are divided into three main areas: Care of the patient, Clerical duties and the Working environment.

The post holder will provide support to Radiologists, Radiographers and Sonographers within Radiology, including preparation and tidying of rooms, care of patients, checking vital signs, IV cannulation, clerical and processing duties.

Under the leadership of our Chair Jacqui Smith and Matthew Trainer, our Chief Executive, we provide care for the residents of three of the most diverse London boroughs. More than half of our 7,500 strong workforce are from black, Asian and minority ethnic groups and most live in Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge. We also provide healthcare services to people in south west Essex, and specialist neurosciences services to the whole of the county.

Our services include all the major specialties of large acute hospitals, operating from two main sites – King George Hospital in Goodmayes and Queen’s Hospital in Romford. We also provide outpatient services at Brentwood Community Hospital, Barking Hospital, Loxford Polyclinic, and Harold Wood Polyclinic. We have two of the busiest emergency departments in London.

As we recover from Covid-19, we’re proud to be leading the way nationally in reducing the time our patients wait to get the treatment they need. The pandemic provided the drive for our teams to innovate and change .

We know we have more work to do to improve waiting times for urgent and emergency care, and our performance against the four-hour emergency access standard remains challenged, in comparison to many other London trusts.

We are particularly proud of our regional Neurosciences Centre; Radiotherapy Centre; Hyper Acute Stroke Unit; and dedicated breast care service at King George Hospital. We’re also pleased to be part of the NEL Cancer Alliance.

Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospital NHS Trust provides a full range of high-quality NHS health care to the people of outer North East London and South West Essex. We serve a population of 750,000 and employ 6,000 staff, making us one of the largest NHS trusts in the country. We operate from two major hospitals, King George Hospital in Goodmayes and Queen’s Hospital in Romford and a number of community outreach sites.
