Applications are invited for a Consultant to join the Cellular Pathology Department, Raigmore Hospital, Inverness. This is a fixed term appointment with the option to become substantive and is available on a ten programmed activity basis, but applicants wishing to work part time will be considered.

This is a fantastic chance to join our small, friendly but extremely efficient department in the beautiful Scottish Highlands. We can offer flexible working and if this is your first consultant appointment we will monitor a graduated workload for you.

Applicants with interest in other subspecialties are encouraged to contact the department as we may have the flexibility to offer job plans tailored to individual needs and special interests and flexible working requirements. We would be happy to discuss your areas of special interest, period of availability and flexible working requirements.

Inverness is the Capital of the Highlands and offers a range of leisure and sporting opportunities unequalled in the UK and this job provides an opportunity for a great work-life balance. Raigmore Hospital is a modern district general hospital with 454 beds, which serves a catchment area of almost 10,000 square miles covering the Scottish Highlands and Islands. It is a tertiary referral centre, cancer centre and a breast screening centre.

The Department provides a balanced mixture of specialist and generalist reporting. The successful applicant 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, and/or diagnostic cytology would be welcomed. The Department provides an extra-contractual autopsy service to the Scottish Fatalities Investigation Unit (North) and participation in this service can be easily accommodated, if desired. There is no requirement to report cervical cytology. There are varying options for teaching undergraduates and postgraduates.

The department is fully computerised, using the Cirdan Ultra Laboratory Information Management System to integrate histopathology, diagnostic cytology and autopsy reporting. Following a successful pilot, which included demonstration of remote working, inter-departmental sharing of images and LIMS integration, we have installed Philips digital pathology equipment with a view to developing the use of this technology within the department. The department has a networked Macropath digital imaging system for macroscopic imaging in the cut-up room and all microscopes have a digital imaging system. Dragon Voice Recognition technology is available if desired.
