The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King's Lynn NHS Foundation Trust is a 488 bed hospital which offers a chance to live and work in a beautiful region with its own distinctive mix of urban, rural and coastal landscapes, all within easy reach of Norwich, Cambridge, London and the Midlands.

The radiology department currently performs approximately 150,000 investigations a year, including the reporting of plain films for the North Cambridgeshire Hospital in Wisbech and James Paget Hospital in Great Yarmouth.
