Job Description

An exciting opportunity has arisen in Clinical Biochemistry within the NHS East and South East London Pathology Partnership’s (ESEL). We are a new organisation, jointly owned by Barts Health NHS Trust, Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust. Set up as an arms-length organisation, hosted by Barts Health NHS Trust, we have our own board and governance framework, with each of the three trusts having an equal voice and vote in the running of the Pathology Partnership. One of the largest pathology providers in the NHS, the Pathology Partnership brings together the strengths of teams from each of the three trusts into a single organisation, dedicated to the provision of high quality and cost-effective pathology services.

The aspired ‘hub and spoke’ operating model is centred at The Royal London Hospital (RLH); a busy major trauma centre which hosts the London Air Ambulance, and connects to essential service laboratories supporting various clinical specialities at our partnered hospital sites.

The largest networked laboratories within the NHS offer an opportunity to gain vast technical knowledge and leadership experience. ESEL recognizes the importance of career progression and effective succession planning.

We are seeking a strong team player with a positive attitude to working in a flexible manner, committed to supporting local clinical services and meeting the needs of our patients by participating in the extended day, weekend, bank holiday rosters.

This is a permanent night position but may occasionally attend day duties for training and orientation. Current night work pattern is ‘on’ duty for three consecutive nights (8pm to 8am) followed by three consecutive rest days.
