Consultant Histopathologist – NHS Scotland – Kilmarnock

NHS Scotland

Applications are invited for a whole time NHS Consultant in Histopathology based at the Area Laboratories, University Hospital Crosshouse, Kilmarnock. Applications from candidates interested in less than full time working, annualised hours or an NHS Locum contract are also invited.

Situated in the South West of Scotland, we are ideally placed, offering quick and easy access to Glasgow, the national motorway network via the M77 and ferry services to West Coast islands.

Whether you enjoy the atmosphere of large towns, the tranquillity of picturesque villages or the outdoor life and being by the sea, Ayrshire offers a wealth of living environments. With excellent education and leisure facilities, the area is a popular place to live. Alternatively, the hospital is a pleasant 20 minute motorway drive from the southern fringes of Glasgow and East Renfrewshire, areas of high quality housing, educational and leisure facilities.

We are looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic individual to join our friendly team of consultant histopathologists. The successful candidate will be able to report cases from a wide range of General Surgical Pathology practice, with opportunities to develop specialist interests including cytology.

There is optional involvement in the autopsy service (both consent autopsies and by contract with the Crown Office).

Our service has a reputation for being innovative and forward thinking, with an extensive, very well established BMS dissection program, including BMS advanced practitioners. We are one of the first departments in Scotland to adopt digital pathology, for routine clinical practice, and provide equipment and support for remote working. The post will appeal to suitably qualified persons who are looking for a stimulating and challenging career. We offer a professional environment where staff are encouraged to contribute and supported to develop services that put patient quality and safety first.

The Terms and Conditions of service are those determined by the Terms and Conditions of the New Consultant Contract (Scotland) 2004. The post is offered on a 10 programmed activity basis. Opportunities may exist for Extra Programmed Activities subject to service requirements. Applications from individuals who may wish to work on a part-time or job share basis will be welcomed.

Appropriately experienced applicants must hold Full GMC Registration with a current Licence to Practice, and must be on the Specialist Register, or be within 6 months of the anticipated award of CCT/CESR.

Interviews will be held on 23 June 2022
