The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust is investing in the reconfiguration and development of its Acute Dermatology Service. These changes will transform the service offered to patients and deliver a truly integrated cross sector approach for the benefit of its patients – a growing population of 560,000. Dermatology is an established and well respected service at the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS trust. Having been a single practice Consultant service for some time, SaTH now has a collaborative sub contractual relationship with a Consultant Community Dermatology service based in Shrewsbury.
The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust now seeks to recruit a Consultant Dermatologist to join us. This offers the opportunity to shape and develop the service which supports the population of Shropshire, Telford and Mid Wales.
The Trust is seeking a full time Consultant but consideration would be given to two part time Consultants (6 Programmed Activities each) as a job share, or flexible working pattern.
You will join the existing team, which includes the Community based team with whom we have established a valuable intermediate/Community link.
This is an extremely exciting time to join this expanding team and to lead the on-going change process – the Trust invites applications from dedicated, innovative individuals which will in turn provide you with a great opportunity for leadership to shape the service of the future. A sound knowledge of general Dermatology is required; you will have the opportunity and potential to bring your own area of clinical sub specialty interest to add to the established Acute Service portfolio. There is an established skin cancer MDT and you will become a core member of this group. There is dedicated Theatre and Minor Operation capacity. We also have established links with the plastics team and the Head and Neck service. The Trust has teaching Hospital status for Keele University Medical School and you will participate in the teaching programmes for Medical and Nursing Students.
The future plans include continued close working with Community and intermediate services to develop pathways of care such that patients have comprehensive choice, one stop services and access to care closer to home where this is clinically deliverable and possible.
The service has recently been working very closely with the BAD to deliver service improvement.
Applications are invited to apply with the understanding that flexible working, part time and job share will be looked upon favourably if required.
Applicants must have full GMC registration with a licence to practice, and be on the Specialist Register in Dermatology or obtain CCT within 6 months of interview, CESR or European Community Rights. Experience in and passion for Dermatology is essential.
