The Trust is seeking to appoint a full time Consultant Dermatologist 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.
Candidates for this role must have Full GMC registration with a licence to practice and recent experience within the NHS.
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 550,000. 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.
This is therefore 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.
Our Hospitals are located in Shrewsbury and Telford and are brimming with exemplary teams of hardworking individuals.
The Government has confirmed more than £300m of investment for the reconfiguration of our two hospitals. This paves the way for the NHS Future Fit programme to go out to public consultation.
Members of the public will be asked for their views on the clinically and financially viable options, including a preferred option of a single Emergency Care site at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and a Planned Care centre at the Princess Royal Hospital with 24-hour Urgent Care Centres at both Hospitals.
It is also a particularly exciting time to join the Trust as we have recently started working collaboratively with the Virginia Mason institute in Seattle. We are one of only 5 UK hospitals to receive this support, from what is regarded as the safest hospital in the world. This collaboration means employees can benefit from the KPO (Kaizen Promotion Office) and value Stream work, gaining valuable help and guidance regardless of your level of expertise. It poses a unique opportunity to make a difference and we hope you will want to be a part of our journey. More about this can be found under further links.
We are ideally located between the north and the south making travelling around the UK extremely easy. As well as being only a short distance from major cities and busy transport links including Birmingham airport, our county also borders with beautiful north Wales which is abundant in outdoor activities, brilliant beaches, and thrilling scenery.
We want you to find out more about the department and our Hospitals, and invite you to contact Dr Susan Kelly with any questions you may have on 01743 261107, or even arrange a visit to the Trust and Department. Please also take the time to read the supporting documentation to really get to know us.
We look forward to hearing from you.
