Dealing with Eczema
Dermatology is the medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions and disorders related to the skin. These services are carried out by dermatologists who are medical doctors that specialise in the management of skin diseases. Dermatology plays a critical role in the healthcare system, as the skin is the largest organ in the body and serves as a barrier against the environment. Skin diseases can significantly impact a person's quality of life, and our dermatologists work to diagnose and treat these conditions to improve our patient's overall health and well-being.
We offer dermatology services in partnership with the NHS to diagnose, monitor and treat a wide range of skin conditions. Patients must first be referred to our services via their GP. Once referred, patients are seen in a local setting within 4-6 weeks. All consultations and treatments are led by our specialist medical experts in dermatology.
We aim to provide high-quality, patient-focused care, with a set goal of improving patients' quality of life and helping them to manage their skin conditions effectively. We offer a range of treatments, including topical creams, oral medications, phototherapy, and surgery, depending on the patient's condition and needs.
We focus on patient choice by offering several options as to where, when, and how patients can be seen in community-based clinics, which are accessible to patients who may not have easy access to hospital-based dermatology services or wish to be seen more locally within their area.
Visit your GP who will refer you to our services when appropriate
