Consultant Cellular Pathologist
At The Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
We are delighted to present an opportunity for a highly motivated individual to join one of the largest and most innovative Cellular Pathology Departments in the UK, with 36 consultants reporting over 58,000 specimens annually. The department is housed in excellent facilities at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, is a cancer-referral centre and hosts an MRC Molecular Pathology Node laboratory.
This post presents an opportunity to join a progressive team which continuously adopts and develops new diagnostic techniques, and will allow opportunities for involvement in teaching, training and research. We operate a well-established system of specialist reporting and the successful applicant will join a team of consultants and advanced practitioners.
A main interest in Gynaecological pathology is highly desirable, but other interests will be considered. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to two or more specialist teams within the Department to be agreed following discussion with the Head of Department and the Clinical Director.
You will have full and specialist registration (and a licence to practise) with the General Medical Council (GMC) or the General Dental Council (GDC) (or be eligible for registration within six months of interview). In addition you will hold FRCPath or an equivalent level qualification.
