As a Radiographer, you will provide clinicians with images of the body to help them diagnose. Just like a civilian fulfilling the same role, you will normally work under the clinical direction of a radiologist and produce images using a range of hi-tech equipment.
Like most people in the RAF, you will probably move jobs every few years, and each job is known as an assignment. For most of your assignments, you will be based in an NHS hospital as part of a military team. Current assignment opportunities include Royal Centre for Defence Medicine (RCDM) Birmingham, Joint Hospital Group (JHG (N)) Northallerton.
Within your first few years of service, you will probably be detached overseas for anything from a few days to a few months. It is on operations and exercises that your skills as a military radiographer will become most apparent: it will be your role to produce images as near to NHS-hospital standard as possible in a range of challenging environments anywhere in the world.
