The Dermatology Department, based on C Floor of the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, diagnoses and treats people for skin disorders such as psoriasis and eczema

A number of clinics led by nurses are held each week to see patients needing treatments such as phototherapy, where ultra violet light is used to help skin heal, leg ulcer treatments, and patch testing to find out what kind of skin disorder the patient has.

Skin surgery is also carried out and the Dermatology department provides an 8-bedded ward for patients.

The department works very closely with doctors and nurses in the community where there is a very successful minor skin surgery service led by three doctors with a special interest in dermatology.
