As this is a teaching hospital, students supervised by qualified staff might be involved in your care. It is valuable training for students and does not affect the quality of your treatment in any way, but please tell us if you do not want them to be present or involved. We will always respect your wishes.
What to bring to your appointment
A list of any medications that you are currently taking.
What to expect at your appointment
Clinics are consultant led and supported by a dermatology staff nurse.
You will be seen by a consultant who will discuss your history and examine you. If needed, swabs or biopsies may be taken at the time. It is very helpful for photographs to be taken to enable changes in a skin problem to be noticed and these will be taken by a female photographer in the clinic if required.
After your appointment
If you need any medications, we will give you the prescriptions in the clinic. You can take them to your GP and collect your medications at a local pharmacy. Some special medications are only available from the hospital pharmacy.
If we need to see you again, we will give you details of any follow-up appointments.
You will receive a copy of the letter sent to the referring doctor.
You should first contact your GP in case of problems, and then the dermatology secretary on 020 7188 6393.
