Dr. Grant Griffiths College Tutor
I am a Thoracic and General Radiologist at Cwm Taf University Health Board. My main interests are in HRCT and thoracic oncology imaging. I am College Tutor at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital and I am committed to postgraduate education in radiology. I am the FRCR 2a Panel Radiologist (Wales) for the Royal College of Radiologists. I am currently a member of the Medical Imaging Scientific Committee (MISC) for Wales and Quality Improvement Lead at Cwm Taf UHB for Radiology.
The Royal Glamorgan Hospital has 500 beds carrying out approximately 120,000 examinations per annum.
We have a Consultant establishment of 16 Consultant Radiologists and a junior staff establishment of 1 StR.
Equipment in the Department includes general radiography, general fluoroscopy, digital fluoroscopy for interventional procedures and angiography, ultrasonography including colour and power Doppler, nuclear imaging and CT. Special techniques performed include a wide range of interventional procedures.
The StR timetable provides an opportunity to work in all areas of the Department. There is sufficient flexibility within the work programme to allow for the development of special interests. There is a well-stocked Departmental Library with up-to-date bench books in all areas of imaging. There are clinico-radiological meetings in all the major disciplines. The StR is encouraged to attend and to contribute to the Audit and Directorate meetings.
The Department is equipped with computed radiography, PACS and digital archiving allowing soft copy reporting. There are 2 general-purpose fluoroscopy rooms, both digital, one with a C arm. There is a dedicated digital vascular suite, conventional mammography, a 3-room ultrasound suite, 64 Multi Slice CT, MRI and a dual headed Gamma camera.
The Royal Glamorgan is situated in a beautiful setting within the Rhondda Cynon Valley, surrounded by woodland, with excellent links to the M4 and Cardiff. I enjoy working at RGH as I have a stress free short commute to work from the Vale of Glamorgan, with fantastic local amenities (including large retail shopping outlet).
We are a dynamic team of Radiologists with a cohesive, team based attitude towards service provision. Living locally allows a brilliant work/life balance with something for everyone.
