We are one of the busiest university teaching hospital trusts in North West England. We manage three hospitals based on two sites: the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Liverpool University Dental Hospital and Broadgreen Hospital.  Our hospitals have often been at the forefront of medical breakthroughs during our long history at the heart of the city.

In under a year we will be opening a new state of the art hospital. The new hospital will provide every patient with a single bedroom with en-suite facilities. We believe that modern healthcare is as much about privacy, comfort and dignity as it is about pioneering treatments and cutting-edge technology.

Applications are invited for a full-time (10PA) post of consultant in musculoskeletal and urological histopathology. These posts should be attractive to either experienced consultants with a demonstrable special interest in musculoskeletal and/or urological histopathology, or to pathologists who would like to develop their careers in this specialty while working in a friendly and stimulating environment.

 Liverpool Clinical Laboratories (LCL) was formed in 2013 as a multidisciplinary NHS pathology service, jointly owned by the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals and University Hospital Aintree, delivering a high quality service to the two Trusts and community services in Liverpool  and reports the pathology for both the Liverpool, the Wirral and the Merseyside & North Cheshire.

The Department is scheduled to move into a new laboratory building in 2018. The posts will be based at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, with the possibility of cross-site working between the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and Aintree University Hospital.   The Department provides undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, and there are close links with academic pathology in the University of Liverpool.

Any candidate who is unable to work full time for personal reasons will be eligible to be considered for the post.

Liverpool is a friendly, vibrant city with a wide range of cultural activities and easy access to North Wales and the Lake District. A new £450 million hospital, including a laboratory block, is being built adjacent to the current Royal Liverpool University Hospital and will open in 2018.
