We had a locum breast radiologist in post for Apr-May 2016 due to the new vacancy created by the departure of the breast screening programme director.

In addition to this, we had a radiologist off sick long term who we were unable to cover in house as this was peak holiday period.

The person who was on sick leave has now returned to work. We are hoping to recruit to the other position shortly.
