The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital is a moderately large general hospital  but its pathology workload is relatively high as we provide pathology services to a number of community hospitals and a wide rural GP catchment.

The Biochemistry department processes a high workload (around 3000 requests per day or 6.9m tests per year) most of which is performed on newly installed Roche Cobas 8000 analysers with fully  tracked preanalytics.

The department has full accreditation and is an approved IBMS/HCPC training laboratory. Continuous professional development is actively encouraged.

Shrewsbury is set amidst glorious countryside near to the Welsh Borders, and is one of England's finest medieval market towns. The town centre is packed with timber-framed black & white buildings, steep narrow streets and alleyways. The River Severn forms a loop around the town centre offering gentle riverside walks. Shropshire provides a suburb location in which to work and live. There is ample opportunity to participate in outdoor activities including walking and cycling in the surrounding Shropshire countryside. There are also good motorway and rail links to Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool.
