We are a new organisation, jointly owned by Barts Health NHS Trust, Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust.

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.

A complex transformation programme has commenced to develop a single, integrated pathology network between 7 hospital... laboratories. 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.

This position is a fixed term secondment and predominately focused on short-term Auto laboratory transformation.

The successful Band 8a candidate will be based at the Royal London partnership hub but may require working at partnered laboratories to a lesser extent.

To support the clinical services of the Trust and meeting the needs of our patients, working pattern may include an extended working day, working weekends and bank holidays.
