What can you expect to do as part of a typical working week in the NHS?

Usually doctors in these specialist areas of medicine will treat patients in an acute hospital setting aside from dermatology, which can occasionally be treated in a community or general practice setting. 

Exactly how a typical working week looks will obviously depend on which sub-specialty and hospital you are practicing in (i.e. dermatology or gastroenterology). However, you can expect your job plan to be consist of ward rounds in your specialism and often general medicine, general clinics in areas sub-specialization, and procedural work as per your experience. Generally, you will work with doctors and nurses from a wide variety of specialisms including surgery, emergency and acute medicine and you can usually expect to be part of the on-call rota.
