Applications are invited for a Consultant Pathologist to join 48 consultant colleagues in providing the diagnostic Histopathology and Cytopathology Service for NHSGGC.
The NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde, Department of Pathology is one of the largest pathology departments in the UK and Europe and receives specimens from all anatomical sites and all patient age groups.
It is located in a purpose built laboratory medicine building, which opened in 2012 at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow and provides a comprehensive pathology service for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
The department provides an extensive range of Histopathology and Cytopathology services for 7 acute hospital sites, 2 ambulatory care hospitals and primary care. The current workload is approximately 88,000 histology requests, per annum but it is expected that workload will at some point return to pre-COVID levels of 110000 histology requests, per annum.
The Department is organised on a specialty team basis and consultants may be members of one or more teams reflecting their individual expertise and key areas of interest. We are currently looking for a consultant pathologist who has, or is willing to develop, a special interest in head and neck/oral pathology, endocrine pathology and dermatopathology.
Within the department there is a comprehensive immunocytochemistry service with a wide range of immunocytochemical markers available. Pathology is co-located with Molecular Diagnostics (Department of Genetics) providing access to a wide range of ancillary molecular tests including FISH, PCR and Next Generation Sequencing. Reports from a wide range of clinical tests and geographic sites can be readily accessed via Clinical Portal or SCI store facilitating clinico-pathological correlation.
Applicants must possess FRCPath or equivalent and have full GMC registration, a licence to practice and be eligible for inclusion on the specialist register. Those trained in the UK should have evidence of higher specialist training leading to CCT or eligibility for specialist registration (CESR) or be within 6 months of confirmed entry from date of interview. Non-UK applicants must demonstrate equivalent training.
Applicants who, for personal reasons, wish to job share/work part-time are welcome to apply.
