As part of the Victorian Department of Health reforms, the pathology services from the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, the Royal Women’s Hospital, and the Royal Children’s Hospital will, through a change process that is in progress, transition to a new separate public pathology entity. The new model for delivering public pathology services will present an exciting opportunity to improve the scope, scale and reach of pathology services and testing capability to all Victorians.


As this role is with the Royal Melbourne Hospital, the successful candidate for this role will be initially employed by Melbourne Health. Once the change process has been completed and the new public pathology entity is fully formed, which is anticipated to be in late 2024, this position and the successful candidate’s employment (including terms and conditions of employment) will transition to the new public pathology entity.
