Hospitals on the Rotation.

The programme is based in the radiology departments at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals (Royal Hallamshire Hospital and Northern General Hospital).  Weston Park Hospital (oncology) and Sheffield Children’s Hospital (paediatrics) provide specific sub-specialty training and are located next to the Royal Hallamshire Hospital on the “central campus”.  Valuable district general hospital experience is provided in 4 local hospitals that are affiliated to our Training Programme.

Hospitals within the training programme offer a full range of specialities including regional centres for neurosciences, cardiology and cardio-thoracic surgery, paediatrics and oncology. Supporting radiology facilities include all current imaging modalities and interventional procedures. The Academic Department of Radiology (led by a Sheffield University Professor of Radiology supported by three senior lecturers and a 2 Professors in MR Physics) is situated in the Royal Hallamshire Hospital adjacent to the main department. 

Further details on each of the hospitals are available from the menu below.


barnsley_hospital.jpegBarnsley District General Hospital

The radiology department at Barnsley, following redevelopment in 2007, consists of 7 Consultant radiologists and 10 advanced practitioner radiographers providing a wide range of imaging including intervention and breast imaging.

Most of the consultants in the department are from the Sheffield Radiology Training Scheme.

The department has 4 ultrasound rooms, 2 screening rooms, 3 general rooms and a 1.5T static MRI scanner. 2 CT 64 Slice CT scanners with the latest 64-slice CT scanner installed in 2009. Nuclear medicine is sited in the main department and consists of recently acquired SPECT CT, dual headed gamma camera; blood labelling facilities and on-site radiopharmacy. The Breast Imaging department and a further Ultrasound suite is present in the Maternity block. There are 2 newly acquired biopsy phantoms which can be used to improve interventional skills.

We have had trust wide PACS since 2005.

All our lists are consultant led. We usually have one specialist registrar attached at a time, which allows great freedom in training and workload selection to reflect the interests and needs of the individual.

Trainees are encouraged to take responsibility for their own cases and there are many opportunities to gain hands on experience and confidence in all types of modalities. Apart from General radiology the trainees also have the opportunity to further develop their subspecialty interests in Chest, Gastrointestinal, Genitourinary, Breast, Musculoskeletal and Nuclear imaging.

The department as a whole is a very friendly and welcoming place with positive feedback from radiology registrars rotating through the department.
