Consultant Cellular Pathologist
The Black Country Pathology Service
The Black Country Pathology Service (BCPS) is being formed by four Trusts looking to collaborate to optimise the use of resources. These Trusts are: The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust, (DGFT), The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, (RWT), Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust, (SWBH) and Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust, (WHT).The BCPS will provide a comprehensive pathology service to a population of approximately 1.76 million.
It is the intention that all cellular pathology services and all cellular pathologists will be based at the hub site at RWT, with provision at the other three sites for hot desk reporting and MDT facilities.
Applications are invited for a suitably qualified Consultant Cellular Pathologist to join the team based at RWT. We are seeking a colleague who would like to work in our friendly department with shared responsibilities and special interests. The existing team of consultants have a close collaborative working relationship, meeting daily to discuss difficult cases and management matters.
The department at RWT has a well-founded reputation for training, with five specialist trainees in the department including two ST1s. As the service transitions to BCPS an additional 3 trainees will transfer to the RWT site. The successful candidates will be expected to share this training responsibility equally with their colleagues.
The four Trusts forming BCPS provide a wide variety of services. RWT has sub-regional specialities on site including head and neck surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, gynaecolological oncology, urological oncology and a renal unit. It is a Cancer Centre and the pathologists are currently involved with ten cancer multidisciplinary teams.
