Join us at North Bristol NHS Trust where you’ll be part of a subspecialised team, working in a brand-new purpose-built Pathology centre.   

Applications are invited for 2x whole-time Consultant Histopathologists specialising in Paediatric and Perinatal Pathology. These posts offer an exceptional opportunity to join a dynamic Paediatric Pathology Service and to develop specialist diagnostic and research interests. This post will contribute to both the provision of paediatric pathology for Bristol Royal Hospital for Children (BRHC) and the provision of perinatal pathology for St. Michael’s Hospital and the South West Region.   

We provide several services under one roof. Importantly, the Bristol Genetics Laboratory (BGL), which includes Cytogenetics and Molecular Genetics disciplines is co-located with the other pathology disciplines and is the lead provider of laboratory services for the West of England Genomics Medicine Centre. We have invested heavily in this service which delivers a wide range of genetic analysis services to the UK and internationally.   

We are based in the North of this buzzing and culturally rich city. Bristol City Centre is just 15 minutes away, and has a great array of shops, theatres and restaurants and has an array of annual festivals and events including the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta and the Bristol Harbour Festival. For those who cycle, Bristol boasts excellent cycling facilities and was chosen as England’s first cycling city in 2008 and was voted the European green capital in 2015. In 2017 Bristol was named ‘best place to live in Britain’ by the Times “the city is a worthy winner thanks to its ideal combination of extraordinary culture, impressive schools, buzzing culinary scene, exciting redevelopment and community spirit.”. 

As a motivated professional you will have a real passion for what you do and if the idea of working in a truly integrated pathology service centre, with some of the most talented medical minds in the UK appeals to you, then apply today. 

The successful applicants will need a CCT in Paediatric & Perinatal Pathology and full GMC registration or be eligible to be on the Specialist Register within six months of the date of the AAC.  Applicants must also have Fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists.
