This well-equipped, friendly department is looking for a cellular pathologist to join a team of five consultants based at Peterborough City Hospital. This is a replacement post following a retirement. An interest in breast, skin, gastrointestinal and/or urological pathology is desirable but areas of interest are negotiable with the current team. Those wishing to work less than full-time are welcome to apply.

The case mix is that normally seen in a district general hospital, with a wide range of specimens received from local hospitals and GPs. The department supports cervical, breast and bowel cancer NHS screening programmes and has close links with Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, which is our local tertiary referral centre. The department currently has two trainee posts. All the pathology specialties have full CPA accreditation and ISO15189 accreditation.

There are opportunities to participate in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. Coronial post mortem work does not currently form part of the job description but may be undertaken with agreement with HM Coroner.

Candidates for this post should hold the FRCPath (or equivalent) and either be on, or within six months of entry to, the GMC Specialist Register at the time of interview.

Peterborough is a pleasant East Anglian city with excellent transport links to all parts of the country, including a regular 45-minute train service to London.
