Residents wanted to help pilot new teledermatology service

This opportunity has been filled. If you would like to hear about other opportunities to  become a resident representative please email: iuliana.dinu@nhs.net

 

We have recruited two residents  to help pilot a new teledermatology service that will help diagnose certain skin conditions.

Using smart technology and virtual clinics, we want patients to have their skin conditions diagnosed quickly, while also reducing unnecessary referrals to hospital outpatient clinics.

The pilot will start in January 2019 and run until June.  It will involve about 30 GP practices and 3 Acute hospitals in North Central London.

The service will be available to patients aged 16 years and over. The GP will use a specialised piece of equipment, called a dermatoscope, to take pictures of skin conditions. These will be sent via a secure network to a consultant dermatologist who will advise the GP on a treatment plan or refer the patient for further investigation.

We need two residents to join the Dermatology Implementation Group to help us evaluate the service and test its effectiveness. This will involve about eight hours a month of your time and include reading briefing papers and attending meetings.

We will provide training and an opportunity to develop new skills, experience of working in the health and care system and on the development of virtual healthcare solutions.   

At the end of the pilot we can provide references based on your involvement with the programme.

If you would like to be involved please email or write to Iuliana Dinu, Public and Patient Engagement Manager, and let us know why this interests you.
