MY Consultant - Dr Aarushi Gangahar

Dr Aarushi Gangahar

Dr Aarushi Gangahar is a newly recruited Consultant at the Mid Yorkshire Hospital’s NHS Trust, who began her career with the Trust this year. Dr Gangahar started her NHS career as a receptionist as she was keen to help others. Since then she has never looked back...

Hello, my name is Dr Aarushi Gangahar, I am a Consultant in Non-Vascular Intervention and Uroradiology at The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust (MYHT).

I was born in India but moved to the United Kingdom at the age of one. I like to say, I was born in India, but bred in Manchester. 

My first experience of working within the NHS was during my college years, where I worked as an A&E receptionist. The job gave me insight into the workings of an Accident and Emergency department, and the vast number of reasons people may decide to pay the department a visit. Whilst the job was overall was a greatly enjoyable experience, there was an element of character building involved. Part of this experience led me to pursuing a career in Medicine myself. 

I hopped over the Pennines to study Medicine at the University of Leeds. Throughout my six years of training, it's fair to say that Yorkshire captured my heart, and I never left! The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust featured heavily in my years as a medical student, where I received some of the best teaching from keen and enthusiastic trainers. 

I stayed in the region for my junior doctor training, and did my Foundation Year 2 at the Trust, with jobs in A&E, Gastroenterology and Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Again, even though there was a steep learning curve, and the night shifts were scary, the Trust provided me with a place to gain confidence in my abilities and thrive. 

After applying for Radiology training, I had three separate placements in the Radiology department in Pinderfields. The Consultants and Interventional Radiology team in this hospital welcomed me from the day I arrived as a Registrar, and through my training. The constant teaching and nurturing from the people in this department made it clear to me that this is where I wanted to work as a consultant myself.

So, here we are now, a new Consultant in what I think is one of the best Radiology Departments in our region.

I want to be a part of this ambitious and motivated team, and I want to teach and train other Junior Doctors in the same way in which I have experienced. I also want to broaden our medical student’s perspective of Radiology, as so many people think that all we do is sit in dark rooms and report scans.

I want to show medical students how varied my job is, and hopefully recruit more people into this ever-evolving speciality. 

I know that the Trust is a place where we all have a determined approach to ensuring the best quality care is provided to our patients. With this common goal, we work in a collaborative, fun and dynamic way, and coming to work is honestly a pleasure.

I can't wait to see how the Trust grows in coming years, and I am excited to be a part of this journey.
