Dermatology Consulting is a consultant-led private dermatology clinic in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, which, since its establishment over 18 years ago, has gained an excellent reputation and was awarded Outstanding by the CQC at its latest inspection.

The clinic offers a full spectrum of medical dermatology for adults and children. It also offers a wide range of laser and medical aesthetic/cosmetic treatments. We aim to offer the most effect treatments derived from the latest dermatology research. The clinic is based in a beautiful Edwardian house furnished to high standards near the station, and is equipped with the best technology. The clinic has a good client base and our staff stay with us for many years.

Currently there are six consultant dermatologists, three consultant plastic surgeons and, because of our excellent reputation, we have an increasing demand for our services.

Occasional Saturdays will be required for which overtime pay rate applies. Some flexibility is required to cover annual leave and sickness. You will have all bank holidays off work.

A contributory pension scheme is available. Uniform is supplied. Private medical insurance is provided. The salary is competitive and will increase as you gain knowledge and skills.
