Consultant in Histopathology (Gastrointestinal and Gynaecology Specialties) – Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust – Manchester

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust

It’s all here to discover at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT). As the UK’s largest Trust, we offer unparalleled career opportunities, a great work/life balance in one of the country’s most exciting cities – and the chance to do something absolutely unique with your knowledge.

As one of the two NHSI proposed hubs for Greater Manchester you will have the opportunity to join a sizeable and specialist Histopathology department and in doing so, make a tangible difference to the lives of thousands of people. We have an exciting opportunity for a Consultant Histopathologist to develop and deliver the strategy to drive forwards innovation for Histopathology.

Under the auspices of Cellular Pathology, Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust has histopathology laboratories sited at the Manchester Royal Infirmary (MRI)/Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and at Wythenshawe Hospital with the Cervical Cytology testing service supporting HPV testing for the whole North West also on-site at the MRI.

This is an opportunity for an enthusiastic Cellular Pathologist to join our combined team of 41 subspecialist pathologists across the two sites. Part-time candidates will also be eligible to be considered for appointment.

This is a replacement full time post in Gastrointestinal and Gynaecological Pathology and will be based at MFT Oxford Rd Campus.

We are linked to the University of Manchester Medical School and there are opportunities for teaching and research locally. The department is part of the HENW North West training rotation, and the successful candidate will be expected to participate in the training of Specialty Trainees in Histopathology.

Applicants must hold Full and Specialist Registration with the General Medical Council (GMC) with a License to Practice (or be eligible for registration within 6 months of date of interview), and Fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists (or evidence of equivalent qualification). If a newly qualified UK trainee, the applicant must also be a holder of the Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) or be within six months of award of CCT (or equivalent) by date of interview. Applicants who are non-UK trained will be required to show evidence of equivalence to the UK CCT.

As Histopathology evolves, we wish to embrace technological developments and are currently in the process to procure a digital pathology system to support cross site reporting and review of our cases. The laboratory is also implementing SMART automation to support delivery of our service. Whilst you will be central to this exciting work, you won’t be on your own. You will be supported by the Histopathology Senior Management Team which includes Clinical Leads, senior BMS staff and the Mortuaries Manager as well. Together with your specialty team members developing the service will be a result of a rewarding team effort.

Whatever you want to achieve in your career, we can help you get there.
