Dermatology Consulting is a consultant-led private dermatology clinic in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, which, since its establishment over 14 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 equiped with the best technology. The clinic has a good client base and our staff stay with us for many years.
Currently there are two consultant dermatologists, two consultant plastic surgeons and, because of our excellent reputation, we have an increasing demand for our services.

The clinic is open until 21.00 some evenings, so there is likely to be a least one late evening shift, but your hours will be set and regular. Occasional Saturdays will be required. Some flexibility is required to cover annual leave and sickness.
A pension scheme is available.
Parking is currently available on site, but when the clinic is busier, parking will be in a local car park (paid for by the Clinic).
