A rare and exciting opportunity is now available for a Consultant Cellular Pathologist to join the team working from the beautiful island of Guernsey. This is a new post which has been created to meet the increased demands in the Histopathology workloads and cancer multidisciplinary team meetings workloads.
The successful Doctor will have wide experience in general pathology which should include skin, urology (including prostate), gynaecology, head and neck, lung, breast and gastrointestinal pathology. If you have a special interest and wish to pursue this, it can be accommodated. Likewise, retraining will be supported for a Doctor who has subspecialised and wishes to revert to reporting general pathology to share the workload with the current post holder.
The pathology laboratories are housed in the Princess Elizabeth Hospital, which is situated on the outskirts of St Peter Port, the principal town of the Island. The hospital is a modern 188-bed which provides acute medical services to Bailiwick. A full range of general surgical, vascular, orthopaedic, ENT and ophthalmic surgery is carried out locally whilst all major medical specialities are represented. Emergency Department, Maternity, Intensive Care, Endoscopy Unit are housed in the new building together with a modern Radiology Department. The Breast Screening Unit is housed next to the Pathology Department. The diagnostic facilities available in Radiology include a modern CT scanner, MRI and nuclear medicine.
Guernsey is the second largest of the Channel Islands with an independent jurisdiction comprising the island of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm. It is located less than an hour’s flying time from London and sits 20 miles off the west coast of France. There are direct air links to several UK destinations and a high-speed ferry. As one of the most southerly islands of the British Isles, Guernsey’s climate is temperate with mild winters and warm, dry, sunny summers (an average of 7.5 hours of sunshine per day from May to September).
An excellent relocation package is available with this job as well as an attractive salary (up to £108,502 basic annual salary) with a very favourable tax regime existing in the Channel Islands. To be successful in this role you need to hold full GMC registration (with a license to practise) and be on the Specialist register as a Pathologist (or be within 6 months of award of CCT by the date of interview). FRCPath or equivalent would be required, or you will be able to show evidence of equivalent training and expertise. This job will be subject to a satisfactory police check.
