10 PA’s Per Week
Department of Cellular Pathology
Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust is looking to recruit a Consultant Perinatal Pathologist to join our well-established team. This is a full time post, offering 10 programmed activities or 40 hours per week, but applicants for part-time working will also be considered.
The job is 10 PA’s, however, further PA’s are negotiable. Further opportunities may arise in the near future as we develop an integrated Cellular Pathology service.
The Women's and Children's Hospital recently merged into one trust and whilst the advertised posts are primarily cover perinatal pathology, the jobs will be shared between surgical and perinatal duties. The posts are advertised as part of complete reorganisation of Paediatric Pathology in Birmingham. We aim to recruit doctors in different stages of their carrier. Interest in research and strength in routine pathology are both welcome.
We have strong links with the University of Birmingham, with the regional Fetal Medicine Department and the Regional Genetics Department, which later is going to be one of the large national centres of genetics, with various ongoing research projects.
The Cellular Pathology Department currently has 3 main profiles as tertiary centres: Paediatric Surgical Pathology, Perinatal Pathology and Gynae Pathology.
The Perinatal Pathology Department provides the Perinatal Pathology service to 13 Trusts in the West Midlands and undertakes Coronial autopsies for Coroners Districts covering the same area.
For over 150 years, excellent healthcare has been at the heart of everything we do, making a difference to the thousands of women and families we care for locally as well as making an impact globally.
The Trust provides a range of health care services to women and families across the West Midlands and further afield which include gynaecology, maternity and neonatal care, as well as a comprehensive genetics service.
- Maternity and Fetal medicine services;
- Neonatal care;
- Gynaecology and fertility services;
- Regional clinical and laboratory genetics and pathology services
Our fertility centre is one of the most successful in the country and the fetal medicine centre, which provides care for the unborn baby and women during pregnancy, treats babies from across the UK who have life threatening conditions. The neonatal unit is the largest in the region and cares for some of the Midlands sickest babies. The genetics service is one of the busiest in the country and offers specialised services for the diagnosis of genetic disorders as well as contributing to research and has recently gone through a National competitive process to be part of the 100,000 genomes project.
The Trust is home to the Regional Fetal Medicine Department, the Regional level 3 Neonatal Unit within the Neonatal network and the Regional Clinical Genetics Department and Genetics Laboratories.
