Entry is at ST3. There are currently 5 posts, all based at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust with specialist Paediatric Dermatology provided at Sheffield Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Trainees usually spend three years in Sheffield and a one year attachment to Dermatology departments in neighbouring district general hospitals. The latter currently comprises two consecutive 6-month attachments, 3 days per week, at two of Barnsley, Chesterfield, Doncaster or Rotherham. To maintain peer contact the other 2 days each week are spent in Sheffield and include academic and educational activities as well as on call duties. Trainees are encouraged to take a proactive approach to planning and organising their training in conjunction with their educational supervisors. The relatively small number of trainees on the programme allows flexibility, particularly in the later stages of training, facilitating the development of individual clinical, research, educational or leadership interests. Clinical Experience As well as a broad training in inpatient, outpatient and emergency general dermatology, the programme offers training in all the major sub-specialties including dermatopathology, patch testing, phototherapy, paediatric dermatology, advanced dermatological surgery including Moh’s, skin oncology and vulval disease.

An Introduction To Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust manages the five adult hospitals in Sheffield (Northern General, Royal Hallamshire, Jessop Wing, Weston Park and Charles Clifford hospitals). As a trust we are responsible for the planning and delivery of the highest quality patient care and provide services for patients from not only Sheffield and South Yorkshire but all parts of the UK. We have an annual budget of around £690 million, employ over 13,000 staff and provide around one million patient episodes each year, making us the second largest NHS trust in England. As well as providing hospital services for our local population, our hospitals provide a range of vital regional and national specialties. Regionally these include cardiac and orthopaedic surgery, neurology and renal care. National services include pulmonary hypertension treatment, particular ophthalmology, spinal and neurosurgical care, and specialist cancer treatments. We have been one of the best performing NHS organisations in the country over the last five years. In October 2007 the Healthcare Commission scored us excellent in use of resources and excellent for quality of services. We are also proud of our record as having the lowest MRSA infection rates amongst major teaching hospitals in the UK, according to figures released by the Health Protection Agency in 2007. The Trust was awarded the Dr Foster’ Hospital of the Year accolade in 2005. We also have a strong tradition of research and the Trust leads on a number of key studies including prostate cancer, diabetes, breast cancer and chronic chest disease. An NHS Foundation Trust We became one of the first NHS Foundation Trusts in the country on 1st July 2004. NHS foundation trusts have greater freedom from central government control and the ability to work with their community and staff to set local health priorities. We have a well established elected governor’s council, which is made up of patients, public, staff and partner organisations and works with the Trust to help set strategic goals and make key decisions. 4
  5. 5. Our Hospitals Although the Trust has overall management responsibility for the services provided, our hospitals each have their own history, which we are rightly proud of. Between them they offer just about every kind of service available in the modern NHS. The Northern General is the largest of our hospitals with 1100 beds. Located to the north of the city, the hospital is spread out over a large site. Amongst the specialist services located there are orthopaedics, renal, spinal injuries, general surgery and cardiothoracic (heart and lung) services. Sheffield’s adult accident & emergency department is also based here. A major £30 million state- of-the-art new medical ward development, known as the Sir Robert Hadfield Wing, opened to patients in April 2007 and a brand new critical care facility, one of the largest in Europe, opened in 2008. The other Trust hospitals are based closely together on a campus to the west of the city centre; this is known as the Central Campus.

Opened in February 2001 it has brought together all of the city’s obstetric, gynaecology and neonatology services in a state-of-the-art, purpose built, £24 million building. Almost 7000 births take place at the Jessop Wing each year. Weston Park is one of only three purpose built specialist cancer hospitals in the UK and provides a full range of non-surgical cancer services to the population of South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and North Derbyshire. It also enjoys national and international recognition for certain specific treatments. It has 140 beds and is home to a specialist cancer research centre and one of the UK’s only teenage cancer units. The Charles Clifford is a dental teaching hospital linked to The University of Sheffield’s School of Clinical Dentistry. The hospital provides dental outpatient services and emergency dental services for the city. As a teaching trust, all of the hospitals have close links to the University of Sheffield, home to Sheffield’s medical school, and Sheffield Hallam University – which provides nurse training. It is a major teaching centre for future health professionals.
