Consultant Cellular Pathologist /Histopathologist with interest in Gastrointestinal Pathology

Applications are invited for a substantive Consultant post in the Department of Cellular Pathology at Barts Health NHS Trust. The upheaval of COVID-19 has provided our consultant team with the opportunity to implement flexible working, both geographic and temporal, enabling us to deliver an efficient service in spite of the restrictions of lockdown. Going forward, we hope to retain and capitalise upon these changes which we feel allow us  to maintain a healthy  work-life balance whilst continuing to  provide an excellent service for our users,  both of which are major priorities for our Department. Our digital capabilities are expanding and we are in the process of implementing large volume slide scanning, remote frozen section macroscopy and reporting, and glass / paper free working.

This is a replacement post with a sole/substantial contribution to gastrointestinal pathology, and applicants with interests in other specialties are strongly encouraged to apply. We are a large department with excellent teams in all subspecialties and would be supportive to candidates with other areas of interest. Barts Health is one of the UK’s leading healthcare providers and the largest Trust in the NHS. Together, our hospitals - Newham University Hospital, St Bartholomew’s, The Royal London and Whipps Cross - deliver high quality clinical care to the people of east London and further afield. The hospitals offer a full portfolio of services to the local community and are home to some of the UK’s leading specialist centres

The post is based in the modern and purpose-built Pathology and Pharmacy building at the Royal London hospital in Whitechapel. Cellular pathology services are provided along specialist lines. The department provides a high quality service and the appointee will be a full and active member of the team.

Applicants are required to hold full GMC registration with a licence to practice and to be on the GMC’s Specialist Register or within six months of their expected date of receipt of a CCT at the time of interview.

A job description applicable to the post is appended, together with details of the department. This post is full time, but those interested in part time work are also encouraged to apply.

For informal discussion, please contact Dr Naveena Singh (Acting Clinical Lead for Cellular Pathology) at or Dr T. Butler (Clinical Director Pathology ) at
