Dermatology

What we do

Our experienced teams treat and manage a wide variety of dermatological conditions. We have daily outpatient clinics to provide advice on the diagnosis and management of all general dermatology problems.

We have a multidisciplinary skin cancer clinic and provide rapid access to minor surgery for patients with suspected skin cancer.  Specialist clinics are held at Chelsea and Westminster for genital and HIV-related dermatology . We have a dedicated day-care treatment centre with phototherapy for acute, severely ill patients, as well as access to inpatient hospital beds.

We provide specialist services including Mohs surgery (for skin cancers), genital dermatology, skin cancer and services, hair and nail, acne and patch testing. In addition to this we also conduct nurse-led clinics for photodynamic, phototherapy and an iontophoresis service.

The West Middlesex the Day Treatment Unit offers education, intensive topical therapy, phototherapy and patch testing enabling most patients to be treated on an outpatient basis.  We treat a wide range of skin diseases at the hospital and at local community clinics in Hounslow, Brentford and Feltham.
