SUMMARY OF ROLE
UK based consultants with CCT or experienced overseas histopathologists with completed or part-completed CESR can be considered for these fantastic opportunities working with one of the UK's fastest growing NHS pathology services. Those with CCT will have opportunities in leadership should this be desired whilst those pursuing CESR can be supported through the process whilst developing their areas of special interest in line with service needs.
All positions are offered on a 10PA, forty hours per week contract, and consultants with special interest in gynecology, upper and lower GI, dermatopathology, urology, breast and head & neck are of particular interest. Please note however - experienced consultants with different special interests can be accommodated. You will be expected to report on a range of specimens but to develop in your three areas of particular interest. Again, there is also scope for much teaching experience.
WHAT IS THE PATHOLOGY DEPARTMENT & TEAM LIKE?
Comprised of a team of 12 current histopathology consultants, this is a moment of huge growth for the Trust as they look to incorporate another laboratory. The team contains consultants with diverse experience & training from the UK, Spain, France, South Africa, India and the Middle East. Management and clinical staff work hard to engender an empowering and supportive work environment. Using a state of the art time management and reporting system with state of the art equipment across three laboratories - the services are part digitalised.

The department has full UKAS/ISO accreditation. The Department is HTA compliant and HFEA accredited and takes part in benchmarking exercises.
WHAT IS LIFE LIKE IN THE REGION?
The laboratories are located in the north east midlands with great access to the North Westerly cities, Birmingham and the rest of the UK with its excellent national transport connections. The local region is beautiful, not far from some of the UK’s most beautiful and dramatic countryside with nature, fresh air and wildlife being the cornerstone of this beautiful part of the UK.
