In response to the retirement of one of the three consultant cellular pathologists, applications are invited for a replacement consultant in cellular pathology at the Jersey General Hospital.

Situated just 40 minutes flying time from London, with excellent transport links to Europe, the small beautiful Island of Jersey enjoys great weather, sandy beaches surrounded by soaring cliffs, and offers a healthy work-life balance. 

The States of Jersey Health Service is not part of the NHS but follows NHS and UK guidelines where appropriate and has established screening programmes for breast, cervical and colorectal cancer. The surgical reporting, non-gynaecological cytology and post mortem workload is shared between the consultants and is not sub-specialised. Representation at multidisciplinary team meetings is also shared evenly, with each consultant taking a lead in some specialties and there is no requirement to report cervical cytology. 

The laboratory processes approximately 8000 surgical, 500 cytology and 90 autopsy cases per year. The size of the hospital means that there are close working relationships with clinical colleagues. The majority of services, including Pathology, are on a single site. The laboratory has been accredited to CPA (UK) Ltd standards for many years and is committed to achieving accreditation under ISO 15189.

The successful applicant will need to integrate within the existing team in order to provide a complete service, be committed to delivering a high quality safe and compassionate patient centred service, and be enthusiastic and flexible in their approach to work. 

Applicants should have an appropriate CCT and be on the General Medical Council specialists register; however, those who are within six months of obtaining the CCT may apply. Under Jersey Law, applicants must possess FULL registration with the General Medical Council and hold a license to practice. 

The States of Jersey is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of vulnerable people (to include children) and requires all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. As this position may work with vulnerable people, the selection process will involve safeguarding measures and include an enhanced DBS check.
