Locum Consultant Histopathologist (breast plus general)

“Exciting opportunity to pioneer the future of digital Cellular Pathology services”

North Wales

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is the largest health board in Wales employing circa 18,000 staff, has a budget of around £1.3 billion and operates three district general hospitals, 22 other acute and community hospitals and a network of more than 90 health centres, clinics, community health team bases and mental health units.

The Health Board has a clear vision and ambition to provide truly outstanding health care services for all its communities and so has established an integrated Cellular Pathology service operating from a brand new, purpose built department at Glan Clwyd Hospital. The Centre has implemented the Leica Aperio system to develop a unique digital pathology solution placing the Health Board at the forefront of Cellular Pathology Service delivery in the UK. An integral aspect of this strategy is the potential to establish new alliances with specialist centres within Wales and further afield.

The Health Board is seeking to expand its established team of consultants by appointing a talented, ambitious, visionary clinician to join the Cellular Pathology Service through this dynamic phase of its development. Together with improved, streamlined working practices, the new facility manages around 45,223 surgical histopathology cases per annum, in addition to around 35,198 gynaecological and 3,164 non-gynaecological cytology requests. Consultants are offered the opportunity to take a leading role in a particular area of MDT specialist interest such as breast. However, sharing team work with other specialities is also encouraged. Flexibility of working off site, clinical and supportive sessions are also in place and can be discussed with the interested candidates.

The department is established on an unique environment embedded within a culture of teaching and training involving junior pathology medical and scientific staff's inhouse training. Support to the clinical medical staff training is also provided. Weekly multiheader sessions and weekly intradepartmental CPD programmes further supplemented by hospital grand rounds and career progression courses arranged by the university are some of the key educational activities available.

Excited by this opportunity to pioneer contemporary solutions that will transform pathology service delivery across a very wide footprint, both within and outside Wales; you will offer a refreshing, entrepreneurial and naturally creative style together with the determination to deliver excellent service provision that sets you apart from your peers. This is an outstanding opportunity to join a leading edge pathology service and for candidates with an interest in service modernisation to develop their careers.

North Wales offers a myriad of opportunities for outside leisure interests such as sailing from Deganwy, climbing and walking in Snowdonia or Mountain biking in Llandegla. It offers excellent recreational facilities for families, access to higher and further education and you can talk to us if your partner is a Health Professional as well and we can consider how we might support their career too. You will work closely with the other tertiary centres in Cardiff, Liverpool and Manchester and have close links with Bangor University.
