The Path Links Cellular Pathology Department is a team of sixteen consultants based at Lincoln County Hospital
The department receives a broad range of general pathology samples, the appointee will be able to choose specialist interests to complement the existing team. There is a daily multi-headed microscope session to review difficult/interesting cases. Workload is delivered via a pull system and would be tailored to experience. Multidisciplinary team meetings are supported on five hospital sites, some via videoconference links. The new appointee may wish to choose a mentor from our supportive team of colleagues, if this is their first consultant post. Autopsy services are conducted on two sites (Lincoln and Grimsby). Participation in the autopsy rota (mainly Coronial, on a time shift basis) is welcomed but not essential.

Lincolnshire is centrally located with easy access to road, rail, sea and air making it an ideal base for living and working. Access to good childcare and education is a crucial factor when deciding where to live and the schools in Lincolnshire are among the best in the country. Lincolnshire is one of the few counties in the UK to retain grammar schools and has a large number of schools with specialist status in a wide range of subject areas.
Each year thousands of people choose to come to Lincolnshire, primarily for the quality of life it has to offer. There is real mix of a thriving urban city with an impressive cathedral, bustling historic market towns, idyllic villages, miles of unspoilt coastline and areas of natural beauty. One of the biggest attractions, especially for those moving north, is the comparative affordability of houses. We can also offer the appointee a very attractive relocation and recruitment premium.
