Applications are invited for two consultant posts in the Department of Cellular Pathology at Bedford Hospital NHS Trust. 

The posts are whole time with their main duties in Histopathology. The successful candidates would be expected to take a lead in at least one diagnostic area, providing pathology support at the local MDT. 

However consultants are also encouraged to maintain their expertise in a number of areas to cover the wide variety of work undertaken by the Trust. There will be a total of seven Consultant Cellular Pathologists working in the department.

The Department of Cellular Pathology is located in a purpose built building and the facilities offer a spacious, pleasant working environment.

The Trust is coming to the end of its contract with Viapath (throughout which the Consultant Pathologists remained employed by Bedford Hospital NHS Trust) and a merger with the Luton and Dunstable Hospital University Foundation Trust is under active consideration. This relationship will enable the Pathology Department to meet current and future challenges such as those highlighted in the Carter Report. 

It is envisaged that there will be both growth in the service provision and personal development opportunities as a result.
