The Dermatology Outpatients Unit at Queen Mary’s Hospital provides a professional service for patients with acute and chronic skin disease including skin cancer. A comprehensive range of diagnostic tests and clinical treatments are available. Possible skin cancers should be referred to the Skin Cancer Screening clinic on Wednesday morning where clinical photography and biopsies or excisions are available on the same day if necessary. A results clinic also runs parallel to the Skin Cancer Screening Clinic. We have a dedicated dermatology specialist nursing team providing quality care in a purpose built state of the art unit.
