previous NHS Trusts and their respective District General Hospitals (Royal
Glamorgan opened 1999; Prince Charles Hospital opened 1978).
The histopathology service has been centralised in the Royal Glamorgan
Hospital. The department has close links with the regional tertiary
pathology service based in Cardiff and is also part of the specialist
pathology training scheme with two specialty registrars rotating through on
a regular basis.
The new appointee will play a full and equal part in the development of the service; the role includes reporting all aspects of histopathology with the scope to sub-specialise to som eextent, reporting on gynaecological cytology cases,the option to report gynaecological screening cytology if desired and teaching histopathology trainees.
The laboratory is UKAS accredited. A recent service development has
led to the incorporation of the Coronial autopsy workload into the
programmed direct clinical care sessions within the consultants’ NHS job
plans and therefore attracts no additional remuneration. The appointee
may be considered (but not obliged) to participate in this service.
