Our Dermatology Service looks at the diagnosis and treatment of skin disorders.

The Dermatology clinic is led by Dr Tim Kingston, Consultant Dermatologist. He works alongside Dr Wayne Maxwell and Dr Leonard Dumitru. We see all dermatology cases that can be managed in an outpatient setting. The clinicians are assisted by a female chaperone.

Clinics are usually held every first and third Thursday of the month between 10.00am and 5.30pm at Manor House Hadfield.

The Dermatology Service offers a short wait for diagnosis and treatment. Clinic reports are available to the referring health care professional within 5 working days. If a biopsy is taken and sent for histology, then the referring health care professionals are listed as copy recipients of the histology report. The report usually takes between 2-3 weeks.
