The dermatology department aims to provide a comprehensive service for the accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of dermatological conditions, including improved public education, and the early detection and treatment of skin cancer. Patients with all types of skin conditions are seen for diagnosis and treatment in the outpatient unit. Specialised clinics and combined clinics with colleagues in different departments are also held on a regular basis.
