Are you looking for a new challenge and an opportunity to be involved in a dynamic, forward thinking, and exciting service? Well, look no further!

These are exciting times for Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust as we develop the running of adult community services across High Weald, Lewes and Havens. These posts offer an excellent opportunity to develop your professional and clinical skills within an organisation that has been nationally recognised by the Health Service Journal top 100 best places to work in the NHS list. We have also been recognised by the CQC for the good work we do that makes a difference to our patients. Our results for the recent National NHS staff survey show that we are better than average for the NHS in almost all of the survey's key findings (25 out of 29).

We are looking for an experienced sonographer to join our team of professionals providing the Community Radiology Service for Sussex Community NHS Trust.

The post will be based at Crowborough and Lewes with possible occasional cover at Uckfield Community Hospitals across East Sussex. You will be using high specification scanners, funded by the hospitals' League of Friends, to provide a high quality service for the people of Lewes, Crowborough and Uckfield and their surrounding areas. This is an exciting and challenging opportunity to work autonomously, offering a service for general practitioners and visiting consultants.

As a skilled Sonographer you will provide a caring, compassionate approach within our high quality imaging team. You need to be able to work independently, demonstrating a high level of competence and will need to demonstrate excellent communication skills. Ideal candidates should be skilled in general, obstetric & gynaecological and small parts ultrasound. Experience in vascular scanning would also be an advantage. CPD is well supported and the post holder will participate in regular peer review meetings.
