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

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. 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 would be welcomed. There is no requirement to report cervical cytology.
