What others say about 4ways
It’s all very easy to fit around your lifestyle. What’s great is you’re working in your own home. I work in my study but I can have lunch with my wife or children, go and make myself a cup of tea, and at the end of the day I can close the door and switch off. The setup and flexibility has meant that I am able to spend more time with my family.
As well as the extra income and the flexibility, I also really like the job satisfaction I get from 4Ways because the work comes from different hospitals I get to see interesting cases.
There’s also always the option to take on more when you need, but I’ve never felt pressured to take on any extra work from them. I started to develop a relationship with the company with the idea that later on in my career this would be something I could do in combination with NHS work or even maybe when I take my pension.

You will need to have your own private indemnity insurance, as reporting for 4ways is classed as a private practice. Whilst we do not have a preferred provider, many of our reporters use MDU (Medical Defence Union), MPS (Medical Protection Society) or MDDUS (The Medical and Dental Defence Union of Scotland).
This is entirely your call, you can either work as a self employed contractor or set up a limited company. We do not have a preference. You can either set up a limited company or work in your own name. Amongst Radiologists who already work with us, over 50% have a limited company so it is generally the preferred option, but it is completely down to personal preference. You can register on Company’s house, use HMRC or you can buy an off the shelf model from numerous companies who organise everything for you for a small fee. We encourage you to seek independent advice on this.
The 4ways model enables you to scale up and down depending on your commitments. We’ve taken on Radiologists who work full time for their Trust but committed to just a few hours a week to top up their income. All of our radiologists have unique requirements that their reporting is enabled to work around. You can be as flexible as you need to be once you start reporting. Just because you’ve reported more in one week doesn’t mean you’ll need to match it the next week. Teleradiology can be used a tool to enhance your earnings in the time you have. Once your set up, reporting from your own home maximises the time you do have, without having to report from a hub.
If you did want to report from elsewhere, you could report on occasion from our Head Office in Hemel Hempstead, if you want a change of scenery and if convenient.
We don’t specify any minimum number of hours/cases to be reported on a weekly basis. All we ask is that you are reporting on an ongoing basis, as long as it’s worthwhile for yourself it’s fine by us. We appreciate some weeks may be busier than others, so can scale up/down your allocation at short notice as required.
No, we will ensure there is never a conflict of interest with your own NHS Trust as you will never be allocated their cases.
We report for over 80 NHS Trusts and some private providers, so there are plenty of alternative reporting opportunities.
We require all of our radiologists to be based in the UK and cannot allow any reporting to be done overseas.
4Ways organises three Clinical Learning Meetings per year, these events are usually held at a local hotel in the Hemel Hempstead/Watford area.
Radiologists are encouraged to attend in person, however if that isn’t possible you are also able to join the session via Webinar.
3 CPD points are awarded following attendance of these meetings.
4Ways has a dedicated Quality & Audit team who manage our routine Audits that go on in the background which commence from the day you start with us.
We audit up to10% of all Cross-sectional work & up to 2% of Plain Film. The audits are picked up randomly and are sent to our separate panel of auditors anonymously.
This audit data is then made available to you should you wish to include it in your annual Trust appraisal.
There’s no need for you to take out additional home/content’s insurance for the 4Ways workstation as it’s covered under 4Ways insurance.
A minimum download speed of 20MBPS is recommended– we don’t need to set up a separate line, we simply use the internet you currently have. It would need to be a wired connection from the router to the workstation.
The 4Ways model is based on flexible remote reporting from home. We set-up a complete diagnostic workstation at your home which you have access to 24/7, this gives complete flexibility to report as and when you have free time. We do have reporting hub in our HQ. Please contact our Radiology Management team to book.
