Job overview

Are you looking for an interesting and rewarding job with a good work-life balance in a stunningly beautiful rural location?  If so, we offer a friendly, forward thinking cellular pathology team, which comprises ten consultant cellular pathologists (10.13WTE). Due to a retirement, we are looking for a replacement consultant to join our otherwise full complement of histopathology consultants which form a mutually supportive team, future –proofed by its broad range of age and special interests. The department is well-equipped and has full UKAS accreditation.   

Main duties of the job

The candidate will hold a recognised medical qualification and full specialist registration with the General Medical Council or be eligible for registration within six months of interview and a licence to practise is a condition of appointment. They will hold the Fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists or an equivalent qualification. If a recently qualified UK doctor, they must be eligible within six months for the CCT and if a non-UK trained doctor they must show evidence of equivalence to the UK CCT. The laboratory processes 32,000 surgical specimens and 2,000 non-gynae cytology specimens annually.  There are approximately 700 Coroner’s autopsies annually. The consultants subspecialise in three to four areas of surgical pathology, in addition to general biopsy reporting, with a lead role in at least one specialty.  There are 10 MDT meetings weekly.  Most areas of specialist interest could be accommodated although colorectal and breast pathology would be particularly useful.
