The Haematology and Pathology teams at NUH are looking for a new colleague to join their enthusiastic service as Clinical lead for Laboratory Haematology, with sessions also in the Haematology Diagnostic Service Nottingham (HMDN). This is for a new substantive post reflecting the increasing commitment of NUH to laboratory Haematology and diagnostics.

Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the largest in the UK with an annual budget in excess of £940 million. It was formed on 1 April 2006, when two top-rated trusts Queen’s Medical Centre and Nottingham City Hospital merged in order to develop a range of high-quality, sustainable patient services across the two campuses. The Laboratory Haematology service is based at both sites. The laboratory is CPA accredited and a single management structure to covers all specialities and sites.

This role is essential to the delivery of a high quality service, integrating the work of the laboratory team with the clinical reporting activity. As the successful candidate, you will play a key role in the provision and management of the Laboratory Haematology services, providing a clinical leadership role with specific duties in the clinical validation and the reporting of results in specialist areas. You will have oversight of quality of laboratory output including escalation of issues identified through governance frameworks. You will also work alongside 3 other Consultant haematopathologists in the newly established HMDN laboratories, based at City Campus, to provide integrated bone marrow reporting. You will lead the development of closer working integration between the two laboratories.

There will be the option to do some clinical haematology work, either malignant or non-malignant, such as an out-patient clinic and MDT, if appropriate to the post-holder.

This role can incorporate undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, research and leadership roles within the specialty. We are a dynamic and friendly department with flexibility to accommodate a talented individual.

Candidates must be fully registered with the GMC. It is a requirement for successful candidates to have completed Specialist Training in the UK or equivalent and to be entered on the GMC Specialist Register for Clinical Haematology or be eligible to be listed within 6 months of interview.
