Severe acne treatment in the community
Our community dermatology service in North Staffordshire, Stafford and Stoke-on-Trent has been extended to include the assessment and treatment of severe acne. The service is now available to patients in these areas, who can be referred via the usual community dermatology pathway.
The service includes seven episodes of treatment for the patient. On the first appointment, the patient will be seen by our consultant dermatologist and undergo preliminary tests to ensure the suitability of the treatment. The patient will receive a full treatment plan from the consultant and will be seen for six further assessments with our dedicated dermatological nurse, who will monitor the patient and ensure that the treatment is working effectively.
The successful treatment of severe acne is demanding and the patient is required to attend frequent appointments in order for their condition to improve. We’re committed to making this care as convenient as possible and our service enables patients to receive the highest quality of care closer to home. Patients are able to choose appointments at a time and location suitable for themselves, without the need to travel to hospital.
