Senior Medical Physicist (BreastCheck Ireland)

BreastCheck have an opportunity for a Senior Medical Physicist to join our team, based in the Cork Unt.

The BreastCheck medical physics team is currently comprised of five MPEs working closely together to support the screening programme nationally. The Cork Unit covers the Southern region including counties Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford and the service is delivered from a clinic in Cork and through a network of mobile screening units at multiple locations.

The Medical Physics team are responsible for the provision of quality assurance, radiation safety and scientific support across the screening service and interact on a day-to-day basis with all screening professionals to ensure the highest levels of consistency and optimisation in respect of image quality. 

BreastCheck is part of The National Screening Service (NSS) which delivers four national population-based screening programmes – for cervical, breast and bowel screening and for detecting sight-threatening retinopathy in people with diabetes. These programmes aim to reduce morbidity and mortality in the population through early detection and treatment across the programmes.
