Job overview

Consultant Haematologist

University Hospitals of the North Midlands employs a dynamic team of 14 consultant haematologists to deliver haematology services to a population of over one million people in Cheshire and Staffordshire.

The interviews for this post will be held on 28th February 2022 (am).

Main duties of the job

We provide a full range of haematology services with the exception of allogeneic transplantation which is performed at the Christie Hospital, Manchester or the University Hospital Birmingham. A significant amount of post-allo follow up is performed in Stoke-on-Trent.   We have an active, JACIE accredited autologous stem cell transplant program. Outpatient services are provided from 3 sites: Leighton Hospital in Crewe, County Hospital Stafford and the Royal Stoke University Hospital in Stoke, where all haematology inpatient services are centralised.  Crewe and Stafford are easily reachable from Stoke by car or public transport.  All consultants work across 2 sites.

We work closely with the West Midlands HMDS service based in Birmingham, and bone marrow aspirate and trephines are reported in Stoke. Applicants with an interest in laboratory diagnostics will have the opportunity to participate in this aspect of the service.

Working for our organisation

University Hospitals of North Midlands has two sites: Royal Stoke University Hospital, located in Stoke-on-Trent, and County Hospital, located in Stafford. From these hospitals we provide a full range of general acute hospital services for people living in and around Staffordshire and beyond. The Trust also provides specialised services for three million people in a wider area, including neighbouring counties and North Wales.


Our specialised services include cancer diagnosis and treatment, cardiothoracic surgery, neurosurgery, renal and dialysis services, neonatal intensive care and paediatric intensive care. We are recognised for our particular expertise in trauma, respiratory conditions, spinal surgery, upper gastro-intestinal surgery, complex orthopaedic surgery, laparoscopic surgery and the management of liver conditions. The Trust has some of the most modern operating theatres in Europe.


Flexible working requests will be considered.
