Senior Anatomical Pathology Technologist Band 5

An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Mortuary service within University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust (UHNM) to work as an Senior Anatomical Pathology Technologist (APT) supporting the delivery of the UHNM post mortem service for Staffordshire

The Mortuary facilities at UHNM consist of two sites. The County site comprises a body store whilst the Royal site consists of post mortem facilities and a body store. The Mortuary is a modern well equipped facility which performs the post mortems for both RSUH and the County hospital sites. The Mortuary also provides a Forensic post mortem service. The Mortuary liaises with the Bereavement services on both sites, the Coroners from both North and South Staffordshire and a number of funeral directors across the Staffordshire area.

This APT post would suit an enthusiastic, self-motivated individual with excellent interpersonal and communication skills, attention to detail and the ability to work alone or as part of a team. An essential quality is an empathic approach towards the bereaved. The duties are physically and mentally demanding. Administrative aspects of the role include assisting in maintaining departmental records and participate in their update.

Physical aspects require preparation of patients for post mortem, moving patients, family viewings and cleaning of post mortem room and equipment. The individual would also be expected to participate in the mortuary on call service.
