Full Job Description
Applications are invited for two full-time (10 programmed activities) Consultant Cellular Pathologist with a special interest in Gastrointestinal and Hepatopancreatobiliary Pathology (GI & HPB) posts. These posts are based within Liverpool Clinical Laboratories (LCL).

The successful applicant will join a fast developing department, which is a nominated hub for the Cheshire and Merseyside pathology network and working towards implementation of digital pathology.

The post should be attractive to either experienced Consultants with a demonstrable special interest in the above subspecialist areas, or to pathologists who would like to develop subspecialist expertise while working in a friendly and stimulating environment. Opportunities for collaborative research are available for those with the appropriate experience.

The successful candidate will be expected to be a core member of the Gastrointestinal and Hepatopancreatobiliary (GI & HPB) Pathology team. The roles and responsibilities will include reporting the full range of GI & HPB specimens, supporting MDT meetings (ideally as lead for one meeting and providing cover for colleague absence to at least on other), specimen dissection and supervision/education of trainee medical and biomedical scientific staff.

The diagnostic work is divided among all members of the team on a weekly rota basis. Colleagues work flexibly within the rota to allow non-clinical commitments to be accommodated, and involvement with clinical trials, educational activities and research is strongly encouraged. Support to develop and maintain skills in subspecialist GI & HPB pathology practice will be offered appropriate to the post holder’s experience, including a mentoring system for those entering their first consultant appointment.

Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was created on 1 October 2019 following the merger of two adult acute Trusts, Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust.

The merger provides an opportunity to reconfigure services in a way that provides the best healthcare services to the city and improves the quality of care and health outcomes that patients experience.

The Trust runs Aintree University Hospital, Broadgreen Hospital, Liverpool University Dental Hospital and the Royal Liverpool University Hospital.

It serves a core population of around 630,000 people across Merseyside as well as providing a range of highly specialist services to a catchment area of more than two million people in the North West region and beyond.
