  • Yorkshire
  • Fixed

A Trust in Northern England are looking for a Consultant Histopathologist with an interest in Head & Neck reporting to join their expert team in a large Teaching Hospital and contribute to the Pathology Services of the region. The post holder will also be working alongside other Consultants that are reporting on a wide array of site-areas which will be discussed in MDT meetings.

Due to the nature of the hospital, they have the facilities to support IMG’s through their CESR (Portfolio Pathway) application and have a strong track record of successful applicants. There is also a strong emphasis on CPD and progressing personal career interests.

The location of the post provides easy access and is well connected to central Manchester and Leeds whilst still being close to a national park and the Peak District. With the North’s lower cost of living compared to the South and the plentiful, high-quality schooling options in the area, this post is also ideal for applicants that would be relocating with their family.   

Key Details 

Job Title: Consultant Histopathologist – Head & Neck sub-specialism

Location: North England

Salary: £93,666 - £126,281

The Department

Amongst 10 Consultants, a workload of approximately 23,500 surgical specimens and 3000 non-gynae cytology is spread out. Together with the new Integrated Pathology Service Network encompassing neighbouring Trusts, this opportunity offers great potential for skill and career development.

In the new lab setup, they've improved and expanded the facilities for cutting up samples. There are now four benches available, along with equipment for preparing frozen sections. They use a system called Macropath for taking detailed pictures, which can be accessed by consultants on their own computers and during meetings. They can also view images of specimens through the radiology PACS system. The lab is run by a mix of Biomedical Scientists (BMS) and Medical Laboratory Assistants (MLA). BMS handle simpler "pool" specimens, while there's one expert who deals with more complex samples like skin excisions and fresh specimens.
