Working as an Echo Locum in the UK??

Wanting to work as an echo locum in the UK? In today’s post I take all of the questions sent to me about working abroad in the UK and I run them by Luke Corley from Globe Locums. Luke is an Aussie living in London and is responsible for finding jobs in the UK for a number of my friends working over there. I am excited about our conversation and I am sure you will find it useful for starting to plan your UK echo-relocation adventure.

Working as a sonographer in London is a great way to get some fantastic clinical experience and further develop your sonography skills. London is an incredible city, but also provides the ideal base-camp for exploring Europe.

    20-30 minute echos – what views/measurements/QA practices are OK to omit in the UK? I know time is not the only factor but a quality study begins by acknowledging that an echo takes as long as it takes. And I mean performed by an experienced skilled and ethical practitioner

      I agree Di! It takes as long as it takes in my book too.

    I worked in the UK for 2 years at various clinics, and the time allocated for scans varied from between 30 mins to an hour. In most clinics it’s not acceptable to omit any standard views/measurements from your study. You’ll find that there are some NHS health districts which are very short of staff, and so you are expected to work quicker or stay back to see all the patients booked. This, however, was only the case in a few places in which I worked, and as I was a locum I would leave a job that I wasn’t happy with. The majority of places I worked at allowed 45 minutes for a scan, and were in reality quiet enough to allow you to take the time you needed . Working in the UK was a great experience!
