Radiology departments across the UK have one of the biggest shortages in the NHS but also have one of the highest levels of patient care at their heart. Imaging in the UK is without doubt one of the most technologically advanced health services in the world with the option for international doctors to migrate into their chosen subspecialist area after integrating into the NHS. The departments that we work with tend to be the most diversely cultured and most welcoming to international doctors which helps making your relocation more personal. A radiologist coming to the UK for their first role in the NHS can expect to take up a general role with the potential for them sub specialise once fully integrated and comfortable within UK hospitals.
One of the most prestigious and most highly regarded post graduate qualifications which allows you to gain GMC registration is the FRCR qualification. Once this is completed you would have no problem in securing a consultant position in the UK with the option to gain specialist registration and become a permanent consultant. For junior doctors looking to take their first steps into the NHS and developing their career as a radiologist, PLAB is the alternative to FRCR. With this exam you would be able to gain GMC registration and are more likely to start your career in the UK as a speciality doctor. You would still have access to CESR programmes but it will take longer to complete compared to a doctor having FRCR.
“My advice to any Radiologist looking to relocate to the UK would be to fully understand the reasons why you are looking to work in the NHS and use that to determine the best options for you. Some trusts will not offer the highest salary but will offer the best training schemes and the best career development. Other trusts will offer a very attractive salary but wont offer the training and development that other Trusts can do. Either of these points may be suited to you and your requirements but it is always best to carefully research any hospital before accepting any offer. I am here to support you and finding you the best possible position that suits your needs.”
