We are looking for a cellular pathologist with a broad knowledge base in cellular pathology reporting who is interested in clinical guideline development, information management and improving the standards of service delivery. We are very keen for the Working Group to be representative of colleagues from the whole spectrum of cellular pathological practice, from general hospital laboratories to specialist centres. 

Why should I apply

This is a great opportunity to support the future development of datasets and tissue pathways series. Those holding office in the College provide professional leadership, and thereby contribute at a national level to the maintenance and development of pathology services, and to the standard and quality of care that patients receive.
