WHAT IS THE PATHOLOGY DEPARTMENT & TEAM LIKE?
The department provides a balanced mixture of specialist and generalist reporting. The successful applicants will be expected to take part in the general rota and either have or develop special interests to complement those of colleagues and meet the needs of the Department. In particular, interests in dermatopathology, breast, haematolymphoid pathology and/or diagnostic cytology would be welcomed. The Department provides an extra-contractual autopsy service to the SFIU (North) and participation in this service can be easily accommodated. There is no requirement to report cervical cytology.
Additionally, the department is fully computerised and will allow for remote working following a successful pilot. There is space for 5 consultants in the team, and the relatively small size of the department makes for a close and relaxed working environment with the ability to work flexibly. This coupled with the slower pace of life in the Scottish Highlands and the associated outdoor leisure activities will provide an excellent work-life balance to any successful applicant.
Details of both Histology and Cytology Reporting can be found within the job description upon review, but you can expect to report on a wide variety of general cases. As stated, before there is scope to further specialise in your areas of preference. The department participates in the large number of EQA schemes and your input and participation would be widely appreciated.
