We are looking for an enthusiastic, innovative colleague to join a newly integrated clinical haematology service providing services for both Ashford & St Peter’s Hospitals and Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trusts. The combined team comprises nine consultant haematologists, one specialty doctor, one SpR and a group of Specialist Nurses in Haematology, Anticoagulation, Transfusion and Palliative Care.

The laboratories at both hospitals are managed within the Berkshire & Surrey Pathology Services NHS partnership network that serves an overall population of around 2 million; ASPH is the network hub for immunology, virology, cytology and thrombophilia and RSCH is the network hub for molecular diagnostics, trace metals, peptides, and the histology hub for Surrey. This vacancy has an 80:20 ASPH:RSCH split and attracts 10 PAs. Applications from those wishing to work part-time are welcomed.
