BSUH and SCFT are committed to supporting your professional development. Sonographer role development includes MSK training, head and neck training (including biopsy), TRUS biopsy and Paediatric developmental dysplasia hip ultrasound.

You will be part of a busy, friendly, supportive team providing a wide range of ultrasound examinations. There is an ongoing commitment to participate in our training programmes for trainee sonographers and specialist trainee registrars.

You need to be able to work independently, demonstrating a high level of competence and will need to demonstrate excellent communication skills.
