Applications are invited for four full time consultant posts based at the Royal Preston Hospital site to complete a complement of 12 consultants in the Department of Cellular Pathology within a large and thriving Pathology Directorate providing histopathology and autopsy services to Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

It also provides specialist services including the Network Cancer Centre to 1.5 million people in the Lancashire and South Cumbria area and has active and developing links with the University of Central Lancashire and Manchester University including provision of the clinical medical student curriculum and modules.
