Consultant Paediatric and Perinatal Histopathologist
Department of Cellular Pathology
FULL TIME, 10 PAs
Join us at North Bristol NHS Trust where you’ll be part of a sub-specialised team, working in a brand new purpose-built Pathology centre. The centre provides all pathology disciplines under one roof and is also home to the Avon Cervical Screening Service and the South West Cytology Training Centre. Importantly, the Bristol Genetics Laboratory (BGL), which includes Cytogenetics and Molecular Genetics disciplines is co-located with the other
pathology disciplines and is the lead provider of laboratory services for the West of England Genomics Medicine Centre. We have invested heavily in this service which delivers a wide range of genetic analysis services to the UK and internationally.
The existing Cellular Pathology service was formed in May 2016 when the North Bristol service and department formerly based at the BRI at UHBristol came together to provide a single service for Bristol. The main service is delivered from new, purpose-built accommodation on the Southmead Hospital site although the department continues to provide an Essential Services Laboratory at the BRI and manages the Paediatric and Perinatal mortuary at St Michaels Hospital. A new Laboratory Information System, Clinisys WinPath Enterprise, was implemented in October 2016.
As a motivated professional you will have a real passion for what you do and if the idea of working in a truly integrated pathology service centre, with some of the most talented medical minds in the world appeals to you, then apply today.
