Dermatology

We are a team of doctors and nurses who offer advice on a wide variety of skin disease. We see most patients as outpatients, in a number of different locations;
Ward 25 at the Ulster hospital, Lagan Valley, Downe, Bangor and Ards Hospitals.

We run services including Phototherapy, Patch Testing, Photo-dynamic Therapy, Laser (for some specific conditions), Skin Surgery and Mole Mapping (for a specific patient group). We have a range of specialised clinics including Complex Skin clinic, Urgent Rash clinic, Paediatric dermatology, Hair clinic, and a clinic for significantly immunosuppressed patients.

Attending a dermatology outpatient appointment is often for help with confirming a diagnosis of a skin problem, or to help improve the management. Sometimes we might need to take a skin biopsy during an appointment. These are very straightforward procedures carried out under local anaesthetic. Information on what to expect is available in the leaflet attached.
