  • £93,666 - £126,281
  • North West
  • Fixed

A Trust in the North West are looking for a Consultant Histopathologist with an interest in either Breast reporting or in GI & Skin reporting to join their expert team in a large University 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 IMGs 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 Liverpool whilst still being close to a national park and the sea. 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.
