FULL TIME POST – 10 PA’s per week

Applications are invited for a replacement Consultant post in the Cellular Pathology Department, Raigmore Hospital, Inverness. This is a full time (10 PAs) post, but applicants wishing to work part time will be considered.

This is a fantastic chance to join our small, friendly but extremely efficient department in the beautiful Scottish Highlands. We can offer flexibility in the working week and if this is your first consultant appointment we will monitor a graduated workload for you.

Applicants must be on the Specialist Register with a Licence to Practice and be in possession of or be within 6 months of obtaining CCT in Histopathology at the time of the interview.

Inverness is the Capital of the Highlands and offers a range of leisure and sporting opportunities unequalled in the UK and this job provides an opportunity for a great work-life balance. Raigmore Hospital is a modern district general hospital with 454 beds, which serves a catchment area of almost 10,000 square miles covering the Scottish Highlands and Islands.  It is a tertiary referral centre, cancer centre and a breast screening centre.

The Department provides a balanced mixture of specialist and generalist reporting. The successful applicant will be expected to take part in the general rota and either have or develop special interests to complement those of colleagues and meet the needs of the Department. In particular, interests in dermatopathology, breast, haematolymphoid pathology and/or diagnostic cytology would be welcomed. The Department provides an extra-contractual autopsy service to the Scottish Fatalities Investigation Unit (North) and participation in this service can be easily accommodated. There is no requirement to report cervical cytology.

For more information please contact Dr Natasha Inglis on 01463 704266.
