Consultant Histopathologist – University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust – Stoke-on-Trent

University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust

An exciting opportunity has arisen for enthusiastic, forward thinking Consultant Histopathologists to join the existing team of 17 Consultant Histopathologists to further develop the newly formed North Midlands and Cheshire Pathology Service (NMCPS) clinical histopathology service. Applications are invited from Consultant Histopathologists with subspecialist reporting interests or experience to fit in with the needs of existing subspecialist reporting teams covering a large, comprehensive and exciting range of diagnostic surgical and cytology work.

Successful applicants will benefit from a “welcome bonus” of £18000 payable in 3 instalments of £6000 at the end of each year. A generous relocation package of up to £8000 is also available.

You will be supported by strong and experienced specialist reporting teams. Opportunities exist to work in a range of subspecialties. The department is involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and is proactive in developing and adopting solutions to maintain high quality sustainable reporting including an expanding scientist reporting strategy, automated laboratory processes and imminent adoption of digital image reporting.

We advocate “lean principles” and have recently moved to 7 day working in the laboratory. Our plans for digital pathology will further underpin successful and efficient flexible working, teaching and research.

NMCPS cellular pathology processes in excess of 70000 surgical cases, 7500 non-gynaecological cytology cases and 1200 post mortems (the majority for H M Coroner) per annum. The laboratory is modern, well equipped and has excellent facilities including those for immunohistochemistry and rapid processing as well as FISH and Molecular services.

NMCPS aims to provide a world-class integrated diagnostic service, where patients receive the highest standards of care and the best people come to learn, work and research.

UHNM has two sites: Royal Stoke University Hospital and County Hospital. We provide a full range of general acute hospital services for people living in and around Staffordshire and beyond. The Trust also provides specialised services for 3 million people in a wider area, including neighbouring counties and North Wales.

Our specialised services include cancer diagnosis and treatment, cardiothoracic surgery, neurosurgery, renal and dialysis services, neonatal intensive care and paediatric intensive care. We are recognised for our particular expertise in trauma, respiratory conditions, spinal surgery, upper gastro-intestinal surgery, complex orthopaedic surgery, laparoscopic surgery and the management of liver conditions.

The Trust would consider a flexible working pattern to support a different work life balance.
