The Role:

Would you like to be part of a team that has a real supportive and inclusive ethos and sense of community, working in a location with all the benefits of country living with the convenience of big city life?

We have long term placement opportunities available in the Radiography Department at The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust specifically aiding in the MRI Team.

The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust provides a full range of general acute, outpatient and diagnostic services at The Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow, the Herts and Essex Hospital in Bishop’s Stortford, and St Margaret’s Hospital in Epping.

The trust employs 3,500 staff and serve a local population of around 350,000 people living in west Essex and east Hertfordshire, centred on the M11 corridor and the towns of Harlow, Bishop’s Stortford, and Epping. Their catchment area incorporates a population of up to 500,000 and includes the areas of Hoddesdon, Cheshunt, and Broxbourne in Hertfordshire.

In October 2019, the Government announced that the truest are to receive funding to rebuild a new hospital in Harlow for our patients, community, and people.
