BRADFORD TEACHING HOSPITALS NHS FOUNDATION TRUST

CONSULTANT IN HISTOPATHOLOGY

Applications are invited for the post of Consultant in Histopathology at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.  This is a replacement post.

The post holder will join a team of 10 other Consultants in Bradford providing a comprehensive Histopathology service to the Trust.  The Histopathology service is sub-specialised and whilst there can be a degree of flexibility in accommodating special interests, the successful applicant will be required to contribute to the general histopathology work of the department. The post carries a significant commitment to the upper gastrointestinal pathology team but also includes a commitment to the gynaecological pathology team. The successful applicant will also support the general work of the Department in non-gynaecological cytopathology. There is no cervical cytology requirement. An opportunity to take part in the Coronial post mortem service is available but is not required.

Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides acute services for the City of Bradford and surrounding areas, and has two large Hospitals; Bradford Royal Infirmary and St. Luke’s Hospital. All main specialties are represented in Bradford, and the Trust has a base of 1107 beds. This is an exciting time to join the Trust as our laboratory services have recently become part of a Joint Venture with Airedale Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (Integrated Pathology Solutions) and Harrogate General Hospital which aims to be a national exemplar in terms of service-design.  The Divisional Strategy for 2019/20 also includes plans for the introduction of Digital Pathology and new Consultant office accommodation.  For further information regarding the Trust please go to: www. bradford hospitals.nhs.uk.

The Trust is committed to improving the working lives of its staff; we aim for a flexible approach to working hours, and have a number of family friendly policies.
