Meet our team

Patients in Dermatology are cared for by a team of nurses, doctors and administration staff.

Administration Staff:

The Medical Secretaries are located in Rowan House and they manage any queries and undertake tasks including typing of letters to patients and the General Practitioners.

Reception Staff:

We have two Receptionists, Miss Joanna Brewer and Miss Stephanie McDonnagh who manage the front desk where patients arrive and book appointments for the nurse clinics and are happy to take any queries from patients. 

Dermatology Nurses:

We have a team of 11 nurses. The nurses are highly skilled in looking after Dermatology patients, which can often present with specialised Dermatology conditions. The nurses’ key aims are to provide treatment plans for patients and their carers to continue at home, educating them on how best to manage their skin condition. They also monitor the patients’ conditions when they are on long term medication. The nurses also can undertake minor surgical procedures.

The nurses are:

Nursing Sister Sarah Gill
Sister Diana Morgan

Charge Nurse Danny Daniels
Sister Sara Farr
Sister Caroline Williams
Staff Nurse Ros Briggs
Staff Nurse Tracey Yelland
Staff Nurse Sue Dinsdale
Staff Nurse Elaine Hopps
Staff Nurse Sophie Etheridge
HCA Wendi Symons

Dermatology Doctors:

There are four permanent Consultants: Dr Cairine Wilkinson, Dr Toby Chave, Dr Urszula Brudnik and Dr Helen Whitley plus we usually have two Locum Consultants in post.  Dr Thurein Ne Win is our Speciality Doctor in Dermatology & we have a Senior House Officer (SHO) on the Ward.  The Doctors undertake clinics every day in Rowan House and supervise the care of other patients receiving treatments within the unit. We also have other doctors from Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital supporting the service.

Research and Students:

We are a teaching hospital and work closely with the University. You may meet medical and nursing students on placements in Dermatology. The Dermatology Unit also participates in vital local, national and international medical research, and you may meet members of the research team, or be given the option to participate in studies.
