The dermatology department at the L&D is staffed by two consultants, a specialist Registrar, two nurse specialists as well as two further part-time dermatology nurses. The department provides a comprehensive service which sees patients with common skin diseases such as acne, eczema and psoriasis but in addition provides a number of specialist clinics and a ‘see and treat’, one stop service.
