  • £93,666 - £126,281
  • South Coast
  • Fixed

A Trust on the South Coast are looking for a Consultant Histopathologist with an interest in Gynae reporting to join their expert team in a large District General 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 is next to the beautiful South Downs National Park, the coast and is well connected to London and Southampton. Whilst having all the amenities that come with being close to a major city, it still provides the post-holder with more affordable living options than London. Also, with plenty of good schooling options in the area this is also an excellent opportunity for applicants looking to move with their families.
