Join us at North Bristol NHS Trust where you’ll be part of a subspecialised team, working in a brand new purpose-built Pathology centre.

Applications are invited for a full-time Specialty Doctor specialising in Haematopathology. This post offers an exceptional opportunity to join a dynamic Pathology Service and to develop specialist diagnostic and research interests with the enthusiastic support of the corresponding clinical teams. This post will contribute to the provision of Specialist Integrated Haematology Malignancies Diagnostic Service (SIHMDS) for Bristol.

The existing Cellular Pathology service was formed in May 2016 when the North Bristol service and the UHBristol service came together to provide a single service for Bristol. The main service is delivered from new, purpose-built accommodation on the Southmead Hospital site although the department continues to provide an Essential Services Laboratory at the Bristol Royal Infirmary and manages the Paediatric and Perinatal mortuary at St Michaels Hospital.

We provide several services under one roof. Importantly, the Bristol Genetics Laboratory (BGL), which includes Cytogenetics and Molecular Genetics disciplines is co-located with the other pathology disciplines and is the lead provider of laboratory services for the West of England Genomics Medicine Centre. We have invested heavily in this service which delivers a wide range of genetic analysis services to the UK and internationally.

Applicants must be eligible to hold full registration with the General Medical Council.

Closing date: 12.07.2020
