The dermatology service is provided by two consultant dermatologists from the UK, and our dermatology clinical nurse specialist. Dermatologists, Dr Barry Monk (Bedford) and Dr Robert Burd (Leicester), are both on the specialist register and are members of the British Association of Dermatologists, between them they have several decades of experience. Nuria Campos is our dermatology clinical nurse specialist with 10 years’ experience in dermatology.
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 mapping and treatment
- treatment of benign skin lesions (including warts, keratoses, and skin tags)
- diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the hair and nails
- acne, including treatment with Isotretinoin
Skin disorders can have a huge impact on a person’s psychological and physical wellbeing, a consultation with an expert is worthwhile.
