We are looking for a Consultant Dermatologist who shares our ambition and vision to deliver the Best of Care by the Best People and has the drive to take us forward, by ensuring the Trust continues to be the first choice for patients and our staff.

The main Dermatology Unit in Medway provides a full range of treatment modalities, including skin surgery, phototherapy, systemic therapy including biologics, and the care of those individuals who have complex skin diseases some of whom may require hospitalisation.
We benefit from a strong and committed nursing team who are expanding nurse-driven dermatology services. We are also committed to developing a robust local GPSI service, fully integrated with secondary care. The department leads the specialist skin cancer MDT and has a close working relationship with plastic surgery, dermatopathology and oncology .in addition there is collaboration with rheumatology and maxillofacial surgery.
