The dermatology service is provided by four consultant dermatologists from the UK, Dr Barry Monk (Bedford), Dr James Shelley (London), Dr Peter Coburn (Sussex) and Dr Robert Burd (Leicester). All the doctors are on the specialist register and are members of the British Association of Dermatologists. Between them they have several decades of experience.
Dermatologists are experts on the skin and its disorders, whether ‘rashes’ or skin lesions (lumps and bumps); the speciality includes:
- skin cancer: advice on prevention, early diagnosis, mole screening and treatment
- treatment of benign skin lesions (including warts, keratoses, and skin tags)
- diagnosis and treatment of disorders of hair and nails
- acne, including treatment with Isotretinoin
Skin disorders can have a huge impact on a person’s psychological and physical well-being, a consultation with an expert is worthwhile.
