Integration of
Health and
Social Care
Services
Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Bill
The purpose of the above Bill is to create statutory Health and Social
Care Partnerships in each local authority in cooperation with health
boards to replace existing Community Health Partnerships (CHP’s).
In Lanarkshire two Health and Social Care Partnerships have been
developed, one each in North and South Lanarkshire and these will
replace existing CHP’s. Discussions between NHS Lanarkshire and the
two Local Authorities are on-going in considering the range of services
that will be managed through the Health and Social Care Partnerships.
In the North a Shadow Board is being established with ongoing
recruitment taking place. In the South a Shadow Board is now in place.
A strategic plan will be developed for each Health and Social Care
Partnership including considering the range of services that will be
managed from April 2015. This service may in the future be included
within this range.
Management
Structure
The supporting operational and clinical management structures are
focused on enhancing patient safety, quality improvement and local
delivery at hospital level, with visibility of clinical leadership and support
for individual professional accountability. Our Medical Managers will
provide professional leadership to medical staff, ensuring that they are
effectively developed, organised, integrated and managed to support the
strategic aims of each Division and meet the needs of the patient.

POST INFORMATION
The Post
The Radiology Directorate is part of the Access Division. There is a
radiology department in each of the three acute hospitals.
The radiology directorate has a good record of innovation, both in terms
of working practices and adoption of new technology. There is active
encouragement of opportunities for role development of staff, where this
will provide an enhanced service to patients. Ultrasonographers on each
site perform and report their own studies. Three radiographers are
trained in A&E reporting and a further two are trained mammogram
readers, supporting double-reporting of all symptomatic mammograms.
Flexible working is encouraged, with, for example, several radiologists
undertaking some of their radiology reporting sessions in the evening.
The presence of a single Lanarkshire-wide PACS/RIS also allows
radiologists to undertake some reporting at a different site from their
base hospital, if convenient.
Lanarkshire radiologists have utilised teleradiology to support CT
reporting from home while on call since the late 1990s, and this is now
provided by means of secure broadband links. Lanarkshire has had a
full county-wide PACS system since 2001 and during 2008-09 was
transferred to the national Carestream PACS. Voice recognition typing
was introduced in 2009.
Dr Fiona Gardner is the Associate Medical Director for the Division.
Each hospital has a Site Clinical Director for Radiology. The Imaging
Services Manager, Mr Eddie McGoldrick, has a deputy on each site.

NHS Lanarkshire – Information Pack
POSITION: Consultant Radiologist.
THE DEPARTMENTS
The departments are accredited by The Royal College of Radiologists
for professional training and are affiliated to the West of Scotland
Radiology Training Scheme. The radiology departments are formally
associated with Glasgow Caledonian University for the practical training
of B.Sc. Radiography students.
The hospitals are recognised for post-graduate medical training in many
specialties and for undergraduate training in Medicine, Surgery and
Paediatrics from the Universities of Glasgow, Dundee and Edinburgh.
Regular cancer multi-disciplinary team meetings are held with
appropriate specialties, and there are less formal film review meetings
with physicians, surgeons and care of the elderly specialists. A wide
variety of radiology staff are involved in multi-disciplinary audit
The departments carry a wide range of bench books for day-to-day use.
There are large seminar rooms (Wishaw and Hairmyres) with excellent
facilities for viewing PACS images in clinical review meetings and
tutorials. A video-conferencing link connects the Lanarkshire hospitals
and the Beatson Oncology Centre, facilitating multi-disciplinary team
meetings.
IMAGING FACILITIES
The departments provide a wide range of diagnostic and interventional
techniques.
They comprise diagnostic rooms including digital
fluoroscopy, angiography/interventional, mammography, ultrasound,
multi-slice CT and 1.5T MRI on each site. A fourth Lanarkshire CT
scanner was installed in Hairmyres in 2009, with a fifth installed in
Wishaw in 2013, in response to rising demand. This additional capacity
is shared with Monklands Hospital, so that all three departments have
equal access.
RADIOLOGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Carestream RIS management system is in place, linked with the new

DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Main Duties
The main duties and responsibilities of the posts include:

Provisions of a general radiology service dependent on the needs
of the hospital and primary care division.

Provision of cover for colleagues during annual, study or shortterm sickness leave.

Participation in the supervision, training and management of
junior medical staff.

Management responsibility where appropriate as agreed with the
site clinical director.

Participation in staff appraisal process.

Participation in appropriate internal or external quality assurance
programmes.

Participation in clinical audit.

Participation in both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching
programmes.

Compliance with Royal College of Radiologists’ recommendations
on continuing Medical Education.

Work on behalf of NHSL such as domiciliary consultations or
services provided by other agencies, e.g. Scottish Prison Service.
Radiology is a consultant-based service. Some functions have been
delegated to other staff but the overall responsibility for all services
remains with the consultants. The managerial head of each department
is a consultant radiologist who has responsibility for the operational
management of the department and its services.
Clinical duties are rostered to achieve a balance between the special
interests of individual consultants and the needs of the service. A rota
details the day-to-day responsibilities of consultants. This will be as
stable as possible and provides the basis for individual consultant job
plans. Of necessity it is altered to take into account the absence of
Page 7
NHS Lanarkshire – Information Pack
POSITION: Consultant Radiologist.
colleagues due to compensatory time off post on call, annual leave,
study leave and short periods of sick leave (currently 2 weeks).
The ‘core’ rota will include all direct clinical care and supporting
professional activities of the consultant staff. Individual weekly rotas will
also include any extra-programmed activities as contracted separately.
Consultants will be available within the radiology department during all
those programmed activities that involve direct clinical care. It is
anticipated that most supporting professional activities will also be
carried out within the hospital or related facility. Any SPA time spent
elsewhere will be with the agreement of the Clinical Director.
Working Hours - The routine working hours of the departments are
Monday - Friday, 9am – 5pm, when a comprehensive in and out patient
service is provided. Some radiologists choose, with the agreement of
their site clinical director, to undertake some of their reporting sessions
in the evening, rather than during the normal working day.
In addition, all Lanarkshire acute hospitals provide a 7-day radiology
service. At weekends and on public holidays, the designated on call
radiologist undertakes routine in patient and A&E work during the
daytime, as well as being available for emergency work out of hours.
This allows all reporting to kept up to date, and optimises management
of in patients, through 7-day availability of CT and ultrasound scanning.
Daytime weekend working whilst on call is compensated by means of
time off the following week. This arrangement has proved highly
successful in providing routine 7-day access to imaging for the hospitals,
and, due to the compensatory time off provided, is very popular with the
radiologists.
On-Call Rota - The on-call commitment varies depending on the site.
Wishaw - 1 in 10 (1 in 8 with prospective cover – 5% supplement);
Monklands and Hairmyres - 1 in 11 (1 in 9 with prospective cover – 3%
availability supplement). A teleradiology link allows emergency CTs to
be reported from home. There is an allowance in the job plan of 4 hours
per week for unpredictable on call.

Work
Programme
As required under Section 3 of the Terms and Conditions of Service, the
duties and responsibilities are supported by a job plan and work
programme detailed as follows:
Job Planning/Programmed Activities
The job plan will be dependent on the successful candidate’s
subspecialty training and interests. A minimum of 1 SPA will be included
in the job plan but please refer to the guidance above under the general
description of the post.
On taking up post a Job Plan will be agreed between the person
appointed and the Clinical Director/Associate Medical Director. This job
plan is subject to review at least once a year by the post holder and the
Clinical Director/Clinical Lead as noted in the terms and conditions. The
procedures set out in the ‘Terms & Conditions of Service’ must be
followed if it is not possible to agree a job plan, either initially or at an
annual review.
The timetable is indicative and subject to negotiation with the Clinical
Director / Associate Medical Director. The initial core 10 PA working
week will be based on 9 PA’s of Direct Clinical Care (DCC) duties and 1
PA of SPA time for a full-time post-holder.
The indicative weekly timetable included in the work programme shows
likely elective PA’s within the 10 PA post and indicated the location
where each activity will be undertaken and the type of work involved.

period the member will continue membership in qualifying but not pensionable terms.

Immigration
Impact of
Change
Further
Information
For the purpose of immigration status, overseas doctors and dentists are
those who, regardless of where they obtain their primary medical/dental
qualification, are not nationals of the European Economic Area (EEA). A
list of EEA countries is attached.
On 7th March 2006 the Department of Health announced changes to the
immigration rules for postgraduate doctors and dentists. The changes
came into effect on 3rd April 2006 and mean that all doctors and dentists
who wish to work in the UK from outside the EEA will need to meet the
requirements of an employment category such as the work permit
provisions. New applications for permit-free training visas will no longer
be granted for doctors undertaking training posts
Non-EEA doctors and dentists will still be able to come and train in the
UK and are still eligible to apply, in open competition for training posts
provided all the other eligibility criteria is met. However, training posts
will now be considered employment for immigration purposes. Work
permits will only be issued where there is a specific post for the
overseas doctors that cannot be filled by someone from the EEA.
The changes in immigration requirements for trainee doctors and
dentists are a result of a Scottish Executive Health Department
announcement and immigration issues are the remit of the Home Office.
