Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust was formed on 1st October 2013, following the merger of Lewisham Healthcare NHS Trust and Queen Elizabeth Hospital Woolwich. We are a committed multi-professional team who provide much-valued hospital and community services as one organisation.

A full time vacancy has arisen for an energetic, compassionate and enthusiastic Anatomical Pathology Technologist (APT) to join our busy but friendly bereavement and mortuary teams within the Cellular Pathology Department at Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) Woolwich. However there is an expectation for staff to participate in cross site working if or when necessary. We provide an active consultant led perinatal pathology service to QEH and University Hospitals Lewisham (UHL). In return we can offer an excellent work environment in an HTA licenced, newly refurbished and modernised mortuary with newly installed fridges and freezers.
