This is a unique opportunity to work within Dermatology based in the Treatment Centre at Nottingham University Hospitals.
This post will compliment an existing team of consultants. The job plan will involve 10 programmed activities (PA’s) for a full time Consultant Dermatologist (Pro rata for part time). As a patient-centred, clinically led department we expect our clinical teams to participate in care-pathway development, research, audit and teaching.
The Dermatology department consists of 9 substantive consultants, 2 Nurse Consultants, clinical nurse specialists and staff nurses trained in Dermatology. It also has trainees rotating through some who are also based at the Treatment Centre.
The existing Dermatology service undertakes consultant led outpatient and diagnostic services, treatments and surgical intervention. There is a dedicated outpatient unit (excluding paediatrics). Specialist nurses provide nurse-led chronic disease management, skin cancer, light therapy, photodynamic therapy, biopsy, triamcinolone and holistic needs clinics.
We offer a supportive teamwork structure and an opportunity to further your clinical skills with the opportunity to build specialist services.
We are looking for a dedicated, patient focused Consultant Dermatologist who is committed to providing the highest standards of care for our patients.
You will work closely with all members of the medical team including contributing to the development of a highly skilled workforce and being an active member of the local and regional Dermatology MDT.
There are nine self-contained consultation rooms and a clinic teaching room. There is a supervised phototherapy area with two TLO1, UVB units and one PUVA unit running an out of hour’s service in the evenings and early morning. The day treatment unit provides topical therapies and iontophoresis treatments. The leg ulcer assessment area initiates appropriate investigations and patient education and links in with the community leg ulcer clinics. There is a weekly dermatological vulval clinic. Skin cancer clinics are held twice weekly and there is a weekly multidisciplinary skin cancer team meeting.
There are three skin surgery operating theatres, a recovery suite and an adjacent histopathology lab to support Mohs surgery. The more major and extensive dermatological surgery and laser treatments are carried out in this area.
In addition to the current services, we are aiming to develop community based dermatology services that use the latest telemedicine technology and skilled-up GPs, nurses and technicians.
