Applications are invited for a full time (10 PA) Consultant Dermatologist to join our busy, enthusiastic and friendly Dermatology department at Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This is a new post to increase the capacity of the department.
This is an exciting time to be joining our dynamic and expanding team. The service has recently moved to a new Outpatient facility at Leighton Hospital.
The successful applicant would be joining a team consisting of 3 Consultants, 2 Specialty Doctors, 4 Clinical Nurse Specialists and 2 GP’s with Specialist Interest in Dermatology.
This opportunity offers the ability to lead and develop the Dermatology services delivered at Leighton Hospital, Crewe, Victoria Infirmary, Northwich and in community settings.
The Dermatology Department treats a wide range of skin diseases in both adults and children. Our team of clinical nurse specialists carry out systemic monitoring, biologics clinics, PDT, iontophoresis, a contact dermatitis and patch testing service and skin surgery lists. We are fully equipped with PUVA/ TL01 at both sites and also provide a state of the art computer- assisted mole mapping and digital photo-dermoscopy surveillance service. We also provide a range of assessment and treatment services for skin cancer.
The department is interested in developing services for Dermatology patients and would consider setting up special interest clinics if the successful applicant has a particular subspecialty interest.
