The community dermatology service manages a wide range of dermatological conditions for patients living in Southwark.
It is a consultant and GPwER (GP with an extended role) led NHS service, commissioned by Southwark Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and delivered by Guy's and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Improving Health Limited.
Referrals are assessed to ensure that each patient is seen in the most appropriate setting. A clinic visit may not be needed if a patient can, with additional advice, be managed by their GP.
Our clinical team offer appointments within six weeks. Referrers are asked to indicate their patient’s preferred community clinic/hospital location.
