About the job


The Trust is seeking to appoint a part-time Consultant Dermatologist
on an 8 PA contract.

You will join the existing team, which includes the Community based
team with whom we have established a valuable intermediate/Community

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

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


We are entering an incredibly exciting period here at The Shrewsbury
and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH).

We have been guaranteed more than £300 million pounds to develop our
hospitals into two state-of-the-art facilities that will offer greatly
improved environments, more sustainable staffing and better

The Princess Royal Hospital (PRH) in Telford will become a dedicated
Planned Care site and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital (RSH) will become
a specialist Emergency Care site.

This will allow specialist doctors to treat the most serious cases on
the Emergency Care site, which is proven to be safer, provide better
results for patients and reduce the amount of time people have to stay
in hospital.

By having a separate Planned Care site, patients will wait less time
for their appointments and beds would be protected for planned
operations, meaning that is highly unlikely operations will be
cancelled due to emergency admissions.

In addition, patients will be able to access 24-hour urgent care
services at both hospitals. This means that the vast majority of
patients will continue to go to the same hospital as they do now for
emergency and urgent care.

We have been building the foundations of a better future through our
work with Virginia Mason and our own transforming care institute
(TCI). We have introduced a leadership academy with more opportunities
for development so all our leaders support, coach and perform at the
highest levels, celebrate the hard work of our staff and recognise the
wonderful improvements that are being made each and every day. This is
a vital stepping stone to ensure we are equipped for our better future
and realising our vision of providing the safest and kindest care for
our patients. Leadership is about supporting teams to be the best they
can be. As we move forward together it is vital all our teams
understand their important role in delivering this brighter future for


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 ##### ######, or even arrange a visit to the Trust and

We look forward to hearing from you.
