An exciting opportunity has come up to work in the newly purpose-built Dumfries & Galloway hospital as a Consultant Histopathologist.

The Pathology department provides a wide range of clinical diagnostic and advisory services supported by scientific facilities in three inter-related disciplines:

  1. Histopathology (approximately 15,000 specimens per year).
  2. Diagnostic Cytopathology (1,000 requests per year).
  3. Mortuary and Autopsy services (120 autopsies per year).

As well as the routine diagnostic services expected for a district general hospital, Dumfries & Galloway is accredited as a Cancer Unit for the diagnosis and management of common cancers.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop a specialist interest in an area of the Histopathology service with the support from the wider regional teams. As the job is based within the hospital the successful candidate will have easier access to departments and be able to integrate within the hospital more so than usual Pathology departments which are separate to the main building.

Dumfries & Galloway have a major reputation for delivering quality care as well as being at the forefront of innovative practice. The range of services provided by the hospital is, by virtue of its geographical location, considerably wider and more complex than many larger traditional district general hospitals.

Located in areas of beautiful countryside and sandy beaches there is ample activities on offer including water sports, golf and mountain biking. You can enjoy all of this and more when relocating to Dumfries & Galloway.

To be considered for this post you must hold registration with the General Medical Council and be on the Specialist registration (or within 12 months of achieving this). Salary will follow NHS scales and be from £82,699 up to £109,849 and will be dependent on experience. This job is subject to a police check. Applications from those requiring Tier 2 visas will be considered as well as those looking for part time or job share.
