The children's dermatology service at Nottingham Children's Hospital provides a service for a range of skin conditions, based on national and local guidelines. We provide a unified and comprehensive service based on high standards for the children and young people within the Nottingham area. Referrals are accepted from other hospitals, consultants within the Trust and from GPs within primary care through the Choose and Book system.
The dermatology team comprises consultant dermatologists, a nurse consultant, specialist nursing team, consultant paediatricians, specialist registrars and a clinical fellow, and research nurses. The team also works closely with other specialist teams in the children’s hospital and with other hospitals in the UK to ensure we provide the most appropriate care for our patients and also to work together on important research projects.
