FULL TIME POST 10 PA's per week

Applications are invited for a replacement Consultant post in the Cellular Pathology Department, Raigmore Hospital, Inverness. This is a full time (10 PAs) post, but applicants wishing to work part time will be considered.

We are looking to recruit a new team member to work in our efficient department in the unspoilt Highlands. We can offer flexibility in the working week and if this is your first consultant appointment we will monitor a graduated workload for you.

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.

Inverness is the Capital of the Highlands and offers a range of leisure and sporting opportunities unequalled in the UK. Raigmore Hospital is a modern well-equipped district general hospital with 454 beds, which serves a catchment area of almost 10,000 square miles covering the entire Scottish Highlands. It is a tertiary referral centre, cancer centre and a breast screening centre.

The Department provides a balanced mixture of specialist and generalist reporting practice. The successful applicant will be expected to take part in the general rota and either have or develop special interests to complement those of colleagues and meet the needs of the Department; Educational Supervision may also be required. An interest in dermatopathology would be particularly desirable and input to gastrointestinal resection work and diagnostic cytology would also be welcomed. The Department provides an extra-contractual autopsy service to the Scottish Fatalities Investigation Unit (North) and participation in this service can be easily accommodated. There is no requirement to report cervical cytology.

For more information please contact Dr Grant Stenhouse or Dr Mark Ashton on 01463 704266. Email: or
