Looking for a new adventure?

Did you know.... there is a city in the North of Scotland that has less rainfall than Eastbourne on the South coast of England? Where the sun rises at the end of June at quarter past four in the morning and doesn’t set until quarter past ten at night? Not that it gets dark then either.

Screened by mountains on three sides it enjoys the variety of city life with access to the mountains, rivers and seas of the UK and Scotland's wildest places. 

NHS Highland has a vacancy for a Consultant in the Cellular Pathology Department.  This is a full time (10PA’s) replacement post, but applicants wishing to work part time or looking for flexibly in the working week will be considered. You will complete a team of six consultants providing a Cellular Pathology service for the Scottish Highlands and Islands.

Applicants must be on the Specialist Register with a Licence to Practice and in possession of or within 6 months of obtaining CCT in Histopathology at the time of the interview.

The Department provides a balanced mixture of specialist and generalist reporting practice. The successful applicant will be expected to take part in the general cellular pathology reporting rota and either have or develop special interests to complement those of colleagues and meet the needs of the Department. An interest in dermatopathology and diagnostic cytology would be advantageous but a general breadth of reporting as well as having the right person in post with us is also important.  The Department provides an extra-contractual autopsy service to the Scottish Fatalities Investigation Unit (North) and participation in this service would be welcomed. There is no requirement to report cervical cytology.

Living and working in the North of Scotland gives you the opportunity to play in the Cairngorms 30 minutes to the south, Torridon an hour to the northwest and those magical glens, Affric, Cannich and Strathfarrar 45 minutes to the west. Anything in a sweep from Ben Nevis to Ben Mor Assynt is within easy driving for a day walk. The Outer Hebrides are only a hop away from Ullapool, 50 minutes drive from Inverness.

Why would you live, work and play anywhere else?  The North is calling YOU!
