Our award-winning dermatology department is known as the St John's Institute of Dermatology. It opened in 1863, and is now one of the world's leading centres for patients with skin disease. We are the largest clinical dermatology department in the UK.

We treat a range of skin diseases, including rare and very severe conditions that require treatments not available elsewhere in the UK. We are also an internationally recognised centre of research.


Dermatology Day Care

Our Dermatology Day Care (DDC) provides facilities for a range of treatments or investigations. These are for when you do not need a full hospital admission, but need more care than is normally given during an outpatient clinic appointment.

Research and clinical trials

Research is vital to improving the care that you receive when you're unwell. You can help improve healthcare by taking part in research studies at our Trust. During your appointment, ask your healthcare professional about research. They'll be happy to tell you about research studies you could be eligible to join.

You can email [email protected] for more information.
