Advanced Nurse Practitioner Dermatology

North Bristol NHS Trust (NBT) is one of the largest acute hospital trusts within the country with approximately 1,050 beds and employing more than 9,000 staff. The Trust provides hospital and community healthcare to residents based within Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset of around 900,000 people.

We are excited to invite applicants for the post of Advanced Nurse Practitioner in Dermatology at NBT. The role is full time but part-time working will be considered.

NBT provides a dermatology service in the new Brunel Building at Southmead Hospital and also in several community settings and service provides approximately 4,000 new patients appointments and 5,000 follow ups appointments per year.

The Dermatology Department is within the Surgical Directorate and managed together with Plastic Surgery to improve skin cancer patients’ pathways. NBT employs two Consultants and an Associate Specialist and several University Hospital Bristol NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) consultants provide regular weekly clinics and surgical lists in the Brunel building and community. There is a dedicated area of outpatients in the new Brunel building at Southmead Hospital that houses both Dermatology, Plastic Surgery, 3 x Minor op theatres, procedure rooms and Mohs laboratory.  NBT hosts the Mohs micrographic surgery service for Bristol.

There are close links with the Dermatology Centre at the Bristol Royal Infirmary (BRI), part of University Hospital Bristol NHS Foundation Trust (UHB), and patients requiring complex biological treatments, patch testing and phototherapy are referred for treatment at the Dermatology Department at the Bristol Royal Infirmary.  There are links with community specialist nurses for management of inflammatory skin disease. 

This is an exciting new role which offers flexibility to best utilise the skills of the successful candidate to grow the service and will include aspects of the following:

  • The ability to see new cases referred by GPs with a diagnosis of eczema, psoriasis and acne
  • To provide a follow up clinic for patients prescribed oral isotretinoin
  • To provide a monitoring clinic for patients on immunosuppressive medication such as azathioprine, methotrexate and ciclosporin.
  • To liaise with ward-based staff on dermatological nursing of in-patients requiring advice and support. More complex dermatology in-patient needs will be provided at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust
  • Provide advice and guidance on appropriate teledermatology cases.

The dermatology department is currently in negotiation with the local Clinical Commissioning Groups regarding changes to how we improve provision of dermatology and skin cancer care. The post may therefore have an opportunity for some community input in the future as we develop a more integrated primary and secondary care dermatology service.

The post is currently based at Southmead Hospital. The Trust has teaching status and is linked with the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England.  Experience and familiarity with UK hospital systems and practices or equivalent is essential.
