Consultant in Dermatology
Applications are invited for a consultant post in dermatology to join an enthusiastic and energetic team in providing dermatological care for patients in Norwich and West Norfolk.
This is a full time post across the two trusts created as a new post and will expand the team of consultants in Norwich from 9 to 10 and QEH from 2 to 3.
The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides a full range of acute clinical services through the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (1,000 beds) and Cromer and District Hospital, including more specialist services such as oncology and radiotherapy, neonatology, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, rheumatology, paediatric medicine and surgery.
Staff of over 7,000 treat more than one million patients; people from Norfolk, neighbouring counties and further afield. Our patients are referred to us by around 100 local GP practices but also from other acute hospitals and primary care trusts around the country.
As a university teaching hospital we have developed our research and development strategy in partnership with the University of East Anglia.
We also work closely with our partners on the Norwich Research Park and Norwich Radiology Academy to take forward our ambitious targets for research and development.
The Dermatology Department at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital serves a population of approximately 250,000 and is in a purpose built facility opened in 1999.
Both departments at NNUH and QEH work closely with plastic surgery colleagues and have dedicated specialist nurses in the departments. There is a strong emphasis on teaching with medical students from University of East Anglia (UEA) and Cambridge.
Norfolk is a wonderfully diverse place to live and work, with fantastic coastlines and the stunning Norfolk Broads. Cambridge and London are also within easy reach via rail links. The combination of excellent departments, premier location and excellent lifestyle opportunities makes this a highly attractive post.
Applicants are encouraged to visit the dermatology department and meet key staff. For informal enquiries please contact Gillian Dootson, Lead Dermatologist QEH on (01553) 613705, or Anne-Marie Skellett, Service Director NNUHFT on (01603) 288379.
