Department of Cellular Pathology

(One Post Full Time, 10 PAs)

Join us at North Bristol NHS Trust where you’ll be part of a subspecialised team, working in a brand new purpose-built Pathology centre.

Applications are invited to fill this whole-time Consultant Histopathologist post. Applicants should have obtained a CCST in Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology and be on the GDC register or within six months of eligibility). This replacement post offers an exceptional opportunity to join a dynamic Cellular Pathology Service and, with its links to the Bristol Dental Hospital and University Dental School, to develop specialist diagnostic and research interests with the enthusiastic support of the corresponding clinical teams.

The existing Cellular Pathology service was formed in May 2016 when the North Bristol service and the UH Bristol service came together to provide a single service for Bristol. In April 2019, the work that had been delivered from Weston General Hospital also moved to this department. Following award of the contract for HPV primary screening, we will shortly provide the service to the South West region.

The main service is delivered from new, purpose-built accommodation on the Southmead Hospital site although the department continues to provide an Essential Services Laboratory at the Bristol Royal Infirmary where the post-holder will be based. A new Laboratory Information System, Clinisys WinPath Enterprise, was implemented in October 2016.

We, Severn Pathology, provide several services under one roof. Importantly, the Genomics laboratory Hub is co-located with the other pathology disciplines and is the lead provider of Laboratory services for the South West of England. We have invested heavily in this service which delivers a wide range of genetic analysis services to the UK and internationally.

We’re based in the North of this buzzing and culturally rich city – if you move here it won’t take you long to discover everything that it has to offer. Bristol City Centre is just 15 minutes away, and has a great array of shops, theatres and restaurants and has an array of annual festivals and events including the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta and the Bristol Harbour Festival. For those who cycle, Bristol boasts excellent cycling facilities and was chosen as England’s first cycling city in 2008 and was voted the European green capital in 2015. In 2017 Bristol was named ‘best place to live in Britain’ by the Times “the city is a worthy winner thanks to its ideal combination of extraordinary culture, impressive schools, buzzing culinary scene, exciting redevelopment and community spirit.”

Individuals wishing to apply must be registered Medical Practitioners (with a licence to practice) and on the Specialist Register of the GMC or be eligible to be on the Specialist Register within six months of the date of the Advisory Appointments Committee. Applicants must also have Fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists.

The successful candidate will be employed under T&Cs of Service for Consultants (England) 2003.
