Trainee Anatomical Pathology Technologist

Westminster Public Mortuary

As a Trainee Anatomical Pathology Technician (TAPT) who is equally keen to make a difference, you can make your own powerful contribution. In this 4-year training role, you will have the chance to gain accredited qualifications while working in a number of fast-paced mortuary environments.

Splitting your time between Westminster Public Mortuary and local NHS trusts, you will combine both practical and theory-based studies in order to ultimately achieve your RSPH Level 3 Diploma Course in Anatomical Pathology Technology, (which is awarded by the Royal Society for Public Health.) 

Handling a wide variety of mortuary activities, you will support Pathologists in conducting post-mortem examinations. This will include handling the administrative side of the mortuaries’ activities, such as taking care of the receipt of bodies and their release for burial or cremation. You will also organise formal viewings of bodies, providing a sympathetic and supportive service for relatives at these difficult times.
