Locum Speciality Doctor in Histopathology

Applications are invited for a Locum Specialty Doctor in Histopathology at Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The successful candidate will be based at Leighton Hospital in Crewe. This post is a replacement with the successful candidate joining a team of Consultant Histopathologists based at Leighton Hospital in Crewe. The Histopathology department also serves East Cheshire NHS Trust, Macclesfield Hospital but apart from post mortems, all work is centralised on the Leighton Hospital site.

The department has full UKAS accreditation and is recognised for Specialist Registrar training.

We are looking for someone with wide general training and experience in Histopathology. Whilst there would be overall Consultant supervision the successful candidate needs to be capable of independent practice and reporting. Involvement in autopsy practice would be useful although not essential.

There is no requirement to report cervical screening cytology.

Applicants must have full registration with the GMC including a License to Practice.

For an informal discussion and further details please contact Dr D M Butterworth, Consultant Histopathologist on 01270 273432.

Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust manages Leighton Hospital in Crewe, Victoria Infirmary in Northwich and Elmhurst Intermediate Care Centre in Winsford. We are the Lead Employer for Central Cheshire Integrated Care Partnership (CCICP) which aims to transform, develop and deliver health care services in the community.

The Trust has been rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) following the recent inspection of its services and leadership and Mid Cheshire Hospitals Foundation Trust has been named a Top40 hospital at CHKS Top Hospital Awards 2019.

Our clinical facilities are excellent, as we have invested in state of the art theatres, Critical Care, Emergency Department and our Childrens Wards (to name but a few). We have also invested in our people, ensuring we have the right number of the right people delivering care, fostering a culture of compassion, support and excellence.

Following an NHSI initiative to establish 29 Pathology networks across England the University Hospital of North Midlands is currently working closely with Mid and East Cheshire NHS Trusts to establish a Pathology network across Staffordshire and Cheshire.
