Consultant Histopathologist with specialist interest in either Urological, Breast, Gastrointestinal, Skin or Gynaecological Pathology (Can include Cervical Cytology)
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 to fill two whole-time Consultant Histopathologist posts. Applicants should have an established or developing interest in at least one of the following specialties; gastrointestinal; uropathology; breast; gynaecological (including colposcopic) pathology which may also include cervical cytology. These replacement posts offer an exceptional opportunity to join a dynamic Cellular Pathology Service and to develop specialist diagnostic and research interests with the enthusiastic support of the corresponding clinical teams.
The existing Cellular Pathology service was formed in May 2016 when the North Bristol service and the UHBristol service came together to provide a single service for Bristol. In April 2019, the work that had been delivered from Weston General Hospital also moved to this department. Following award of the contract for HPV primary screening, we will shortly provide the service to the South West region.
The main service is delivered from new, purpose-built accommodation on the Southmead Hospital site although the department continues to provide an Essential Services Laboratory at the Bristol Royal Infirmary. A new Laboratory Information System, Clinisys WinPath Enterprise, was implemented in October 2016.
We, Severn Pathology, 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 – if you move here it won’t take you long to discover everything that it has to offer. 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 appeals to you, then apply today.
Close date –Thursday 8th August 2019 (midnight). Interview date – Tuesday 5th November 2019
