Job Description

The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the most successful teaching NHS Trusts in the country. We offer the second highest number of specialist services than any other group of hospitals in the UK. With around 14,500 staff, the Newcastle Hospitals is one of the region’s major employers. We have a long-standing reputation for high quality clinical care with our staff’s commitment to excellence reflected in our consistent performance at the highest level. We are committed to being an “employer of choice” offering our staff superb benefits, looking after their wellbeing, and providing access to high-quality education, training, career progression and support which enables them to provide “healthcare at its very best – with a personal touch”.

REF. 317-CON-16-150

We are delighted to present an opportunity for a highly motivated individual to join one of the largest Cellular Pathology Departments in the UK, with 36 consultants reporting over 57,000 specimens annually. The department is housed in excellent facilities at the Royal Victoria Infirmary and is a cancer-referral centre. This post presents an opportunity to join a progressive team, and will allow opportunities for involvement in teaching and research.

We operate a well-established system of specialist reporting, and the main remit of this post is breast pathology. This is a new post, created to cover the increased demand of clinical services, and the successful applicant will join a team of four other consultants who specialise in breast pathology, reporting around 3,500 cases per year, covering the full range of specimens. A willingness to join another team would also be considered, and the department will aim to accommodate the preferences of the successful candidate.

You will have full and specialist registration (and a licence to practise) with the General Medical Council (GMC) (or be eligible for registration within six months of interview). In addition you will hold FRCPath or an equivalent level qualification.
