Patients in Dermatology are cared for by a team of HCA’s, nurses, doctors and administration staff.
The Administration Team are located in Rowan House, they manage any queries and undertake multiple tasks including the typing of letters to patients and the General Practitioners.
We have three Receptionists, who manage the front desk where patients arrive and book appointments for the nurse clinics and are happy to take any queries from patients.
We have an abundant team of nurses, including specialist Dermatology nursing sisters. All our nurses are highly skilled in looking after Dermatology patients, which often present with varied 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. A group of specialist nurses also undertake minor surgical procedures.
There are four permanent Consultants: Dr Helen Whitley, Dr Toby Chave, Dr Toby Nelson and Dr Cairine Wilkinson. Dr Thurein Ne Win is our Speciality Doctor in Dermatology & we have a Senior House Officer (SHO) on the Unit. The Doctors undertake clinics every day in Rowan House and supervise the care of other patients receiving treatments within the unit.
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.
