Airedale is a high performing Trust, situated in some of the finest countryside in England, including the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This post offers the successful candidate exposure to a wide range of interesting pathology in a highly regarded, supportive department as well as living in one of the most beautiful parts of Yorkshire where there is a high quality of life and plentiful opportunities for an excellent work/life balance.

The wide range of histopathology and non-gynaecological cytology work will be shared equitably between the five WTE Histopathologists, with scope for developing lead roles or areas of special interest.
