''A great place to be cared for; a great place to work''


An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Associate Specialist Doctor to join the Dermatology team within the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust. This is a new post that has been generated through a redesign of services to ensure capacity matches demand and improve access times and patient outcomes for our population of 350,000 across North Lancashire, South Cumbria and Furness..

The appointee is required to have appropriate experience and interest in Dermatology.

The Medicine Care Group provides services across five hospitals within Morecambe Bay:

  • Furness General Hospital
  • Ulverston Health Centre
  • Westmorland General Hospital
  • Royal Lancaster Infirmary
  • Queen Victoria Hospital, Morecambe

The Dermatology service has been undergoing major transition within the last 12 months and we seek a highly motivated Associate Specialist Clinician with an appetite for change to join the team and help us drive forward the changes required to ensure the specialty and Trust are viewed as ‘A great place to be cared for; a great place to work”

The Dermatology Department is housed in dedicated accommodation at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary consisting of consulting rooms, biopsy theatres, phototherapy suite (PUVA and narrowband UVB), treatment rooms and day care facilities. We also provide Dermatology services at Furness General Hospital, Barrow in Furness, Ulverston Health Centre and Westmorland General Hospital, Kendal.

In 2007-2008 in response to a comprehensive review with the Primary Care Trusts, a range of one-stop clinics and nurse led services (nurse led biopsy clinics, chronic disease management, day care clinics, nurse led cancer follow clinics, nurse led acne clinics and nurse led patch test clinics) have been developed. In the day care clinics patients on second line therapies are monitored.

The department consists of 2 full time Consultants, 4 Trust Grade Clinicians, 4 GP’s with special interests and 5 Clinical Nurse Specialists. Consultant, secretarial and nursing offices are on site. We are a friendly, dynamic team with special interests.
