Diagnosing and treating skin diseases


Dermatology services

Our award-winning dermatology department is known as 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.
