The dermatology team comprises five consultants, specialist nursing staff, a specialist registrar, clinical assistants and a community dermatology nurse specialist. We provide treatment and care for a wide range of skin conditions.
The majority of care is provided at St Helier Hospital, although treatment and clinics also take place at Epsom, Sutton and Leatherhead hospitals.
We manage around 1,000 skin cancer cases every year, more than any other centre or unit in our network. We are able to carry out the majority of skin cancer surgery at St Helier Hospital, and we are the chosen provider of Mohs micrographic surgery (the treatment of choice for locally recurrent skin cancers) for southwest London.
We also provide photodynamic therapy, a non-invasive treatment for pre-cancerous or thin skin cancerous lesions.
Child dermatology inpatients are treated at Queen Mary's Hospital for Children, where child outpatient clinics are also held.
We have considerable expertise in the area of cytotoxic and complex systemic therapies for severe skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and scarring acne.
The SK:N laser clinic is a private unit based at Epsom Hospital that also provides some treatment on the NHS.
There is a day case laser list for Queen Mary's Hospital for Children once a month for general anaesthetic treatment of children's birthmarks.
