Applications are invited for the post of Consultant in Histopathology at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This is a replacement post.

The post holder will join a team of 9 other Consultants in Bradford providing a comprehensive Histopathology service to the Trust.

The post carries a significant commitment to the lower gastrointestinal pathology team but also includes a commitment to the head and neck pathology team. The successful applicant will also support the general work of the Department in non-gynaecological cytopathology. There is no cervical cytology requirement. An opportunity to take part in the Coronial post mortem service is available but is not required.
