University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust

An exciting opportunity has arisen for enthusiastic, forward thinking Consultant Histopathologists to join our team of 33 consultants based at Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Heartlands Hospital covering a large and comprehensive range of diagnostic surgical and cytology work. UHB has close links with UOB and research and teaching opportunities exist and are encouraged.

Key cancer sites include breast, urological, gastrointestinal, colorectal, haemato-lymphoid, hepato-biliary/pancreas, head and neck, lung/mesothelioma, bone and soft tissue, and skin pathology. Additionally medical and transplant kidney, heart, liver and lung pathology are important areas. The ideal candidates will contribute to two or three subspecialties to provide rota flexibility (although monospecialism will be considered).

You will be supported by strong and experienced specialist reporting teams. 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 dissection and reporting strategy, automated laboratory processes and imminent adoption of digital image reporting.

We advocate “lean principles” and are in the process of implementing a digital pathology solution. Our plans for digital pathology will further underpin successful and efficient flexible working, teaching and research. Digital Pathology will enable UHB to build on our relationships with Histopathology Departments at other Trusts.

We are a fully accredited UKAS Laboratory working to ISO15189

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.

Please note: COVID-19 vaccination remains the best way to protect yourself, your family, your colleagues and of course our patients from the virus when working in our healthcare settings.

We do encourage our staff to get vaccinated. We will be checking the vaccination status of all new starters so that we can manage individual and environmental risks, and so that we can support those who may be undecided about vaccination. If you are unvaccinated there is helpful advice and information at where you can also find out more about how to access vaccination.

All posts involving access to persons in receipt of health services will be subject to a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check. However, having a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us; this will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances of your offences‎.

Disabled applicants, in line with our commitment to the Disability Confident Scheme, will be guaranteed an interview where they meet the essential criteria and declare their disabled status. The Trust will accept applications in other formats where applicants have disabilities that require a reasonable adjustment for them to be able to apply for vacancies; consideration in respect of additional time for postage/delivery time etc will be given.

Staff recruited from outside of the NHS will usually be appointed at the bottom of the pay band.

Applications from job seekers who require sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced or skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as it is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Visas and Immigration requires employers to complete this test to show that suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit UK Visas and Immigration website.
