Locum Consultant Haematopathologist Full Time 10 PA, Fixed Term Appointment for 12 months

Applications are invited for a locum Consultant Haematopathologist with a specialist interest in haematological malignancies in the Department of Cellular Pathology at Barts Health NHS Trust. The appointment is to provide diagnostic haematopathology including flow cytometry, bone marrow aspirate, blood film, trephine and lymph node/extranodal histopathology reporting. The post holder will be a part of the laboratory/diagnostic MDT and the Haematological Oncology MDM. The post holder will support the provision of a comprehensive, high quality diagnostic Haematopathology service as part of the SIHMDS within Barts Health and for other Trusts for which the SIHMDS undertakes service provision. 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 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.

The post is based in the state-of-the-art 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.
