Our paediatric dermatology service has doubled in size in the past three years, making it one of the biggest units in the country.
Our consultant-led service diagnoses and treats skin diseases in children including severe eczema, psoriasis, alopecia, haemangioma (strawberry marks), acne and Vitiligo (loss of pigment). Supported by a paediatric dermatology clinical nurse specialist, we offer four consultant-led and two nurse-led outpatient clinics a week and provide 24 hour, seven day cover for the hospital.
We also have a paediatric rapid access service on the PACCS run by a paediatrician with dermatology experience. This is only accessed through your own GP or your local emergency department.
We hold a consultant led paediatric surgical clinic regularly throughout the year, where it may be possible to see and treat on the same day.
Children benefit from a multidisciplinary team which includes input from other paediatric specialties including paediatricians. Plastic surgery, gastroenterology, dietetics and psychology to develop intensive management plans. If required, patients are also supported through a seamless transfer to our adult dermatology service.
Please note we do not offer a drop in service. You must be referred to the clinic through your own GP or another referring physician.
