Dermatology is a branch of medicine dealing with skin disease in people of all ages. The doctor who specialises in this field of medicine is called a Dermatologist. Dermatologists identify and remove skin cancers, cysts, and other skin growths.
They also help treat other skin issues such as:
- Skin Allergies
- Fungal diseases
- Skin Cancers
- Minor ops
- Phototherapy and photodynamic therapy
- Patch testing and biologics
Patients are seen in the main outpatients departments by the consultants at Lister Hospital, QE II and Hertford County.
Patients are rarely admitted onto a ward on either of the sites but if necessary will be allocated a bed according to the current availability.
