Applications are invited for a full-time post for a Consultant Dermatologist with an interest in inflammatory Dermatology employed by Liverpool University Hospitals Foundation Trust.

On 1st October 2019, Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was created, through the merger of Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust. The newly formed Trust is responsible for managing services at Aintree University Hospital, Broadgreen Hospital, Liverpool Dental Hospital and the Royal Liverpool University Hospital.

Bringing together a combined workforce of over 12,000 staff, the Trust has become the largest NHS employer in Merseyside and Cheshire. As well as providing general hospital services to the local population, the Trust provides a range of highly specialist services to more than two million people in the North West and beyond.

This merger has been driven by clinicians, who for a long time have recognised that a union of the Trusts will enable significant changes that will transform the way healthcare is delivered. The aim is to address the current levels of variation and fragmentation that exists between acute hospital services in Liverpool, and to ensure that all services are of the highest quality. The new Trust will also seek to influence the wider determinants of health by closer involvement in employment, housing and education, and to be part of a first class research and scientific development partnership with Higher Education and business enterprise across the city and beyond.

These changes, which will take place over the next few years, through a phased approach, building on the skills and talents of a fantastic workforce, to spread best practice, deliver innovation and provide sustainable services for patients. This will be achieved by reconfiguring services, centralised where necessary, local where possible and focusing on staff; with an ambition to be the best place for staff to train and work.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join an enthusiastic and friendly team of Consultants in established dermatology departments at Broadgreen and Aintree. The dermatology clinic offers general and all the sub-specialist clinics including a contact dermatitis service.

Liverpool is a fun, interesting and vibrant city with something for everyone – history, culture, sport, shopping and all within easy access to North Wales and the Lake District.

The successful applicant/s must be on, or within 6 months entry to the specialist register or equivalent experience and be fully registered with the GMC.
