Job Description

Applications are invited for two part time or whole time Consultant posts in Histopathology and Cytopathology. You will be joining a team of eleven Consultant Histopathologists and two Consultant Neuropathologists. This is a very busy department with an unusually interesting, varied and growing workload, covering virtually every specialty, annually 33,000 surgical specimens, 7,000 non gynaecological cytology specimens, and 50,000 cervical smears. The department supports cervical, breast and bowel NHS screening programmes and the work of the Trust as a Cancer Centre. Successful candidates will be able to report cases from a wide range of General Surgical Pathology practice, although a degree of subspecialisation has been introduced. Candidates who have already developed a subspecialist interest are welcome, as are individuals who wish to retain a more generalised approach. Development of areas of specialist interest is encouraged.
There are opportunities to participate in postgraduate teaching. There is opportunity for Coronial work however optional and carried out under the specific instruction of H M Coroner.

The successful candidate must hold GMC registration, FRCPath or its equivalent, be on the Specialist Register or within six months of their CCST/CCT at interview.

BHR is one of the largest Associate Teaching Hospitals, providing acute care for over 700,000 people from across 2 main sites – Queens and King George Hospitals, as well as peripheral sites at Barking, Dagenham and Brentwood. We are a major Neurosciences centre, and are undergoing significant further development as a tertiary referral centre for North East London and Essex, including additional critical care capacity.

We are also a major cancer centre, and are actively striving to enhance the range of our services.

In addition, our Trust is in an excellent location, close to Central London and well situated in the South East of the UK. As well as all the advantages of being close to the city, you will discover that Essex has beautiful countryside as well as excellent schools, transport links, amenities and residential areas.
