Online applications are invited to apply for the post as Consultant Dermatologist. It’s an exciting time for Dermatology services at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust. Due to the sustained growth and expansion of services we are recruiting to a new, permanent consultant post.
ABOUT THE TEAM
The Southampton dermatology department is a busy self-contained outpatient department in a large university teaching hospital. The post holder will join an existing team of 15 consultants including academic clinician scientists. We have very well established links with the academic department at University of Southampton and excellent facilities for research are in place. Southampton is one of three recognised specialist centres for treating skin cancer within the Central South Coast Cancer Network and within that it is the recognised melanoma centre with access to major melanoma trials. Skin cancer forms a large amount of our workload; We are in the process of setting up MOHS micrographic surgery at UHS and the department has an established specialist photo-investigation service in close cooperation with St. John’s Institute. In addition, the department has a strong research interest in allergy /drug allergy, eczema, psoriasis and photo-dermatology and is providing tertiary services in these fields.
WHAT YOU’LL DO
This 10 PA post in Dermatology will be based at Royal South Hants Hospital, with some sessions based in Southampton General Hospital and/or peripheral hospitals or other sites of health care provision. The focus of this post is to provide comprehensive specialist outpatient services in dermatology and in addition could include either services for skin cancer including appropriate surgical treatment/MOHS or services for a subspecialty in medical dermatology.
