Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s busiest and most successful NHS foundation trusts.

Directorate of Laboratory Medicine

Applications are invited for a whole-time Consultant Histopathologist for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the developing South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Pathology. 

It is expected to be an oligo-specialist post structured to contribute to Cardiothoracic Pathology and GI Pathology. Other areas of subspecialist practice possible subject to department needs and interests of the candidate.

The successful appointee would be expected to actively contribute reporting cytology material within the relevant subspecialist areas. The appointee would be expected to actively engage with training of histopathology trainees, and the support and supervision of biomedical scientists / expert practitioners (e.g. in cut-up).  Since 2013, the intraoperative frozen sections service is provided using digital pathology platform and the applicant will be expected to endorse this mode of service delivery. There is no expectation that the appointee would undertake autopsy practice- this is however an option as an independent arrangement with HM Coroner.  The department is committed to lean working, and the appropriate use of technology – including digital pathology in due course – is required. 

The successful candidate is required to actively contribute to the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw (SYB) Pathology Transformation Programme. The Programme, endorsed by SYB Integrated Care System, was set-up in 2018 by the partner Trusts Barnsley Hospital NHS FT, Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS FT, Sheffield Children’s Hospital NHS FT, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS FT and The Rotherham Hospital NSH FT to respond effectively to the major integration drivers within the NHS and the region. Our vision to “improve lives and safeguard best clinical outcomes by delivering high-quality, innovative laboratory medicine solutions”.
