Category: Surgery, Cancer and DiagnosticsDescription
The Department of Dermatology at the Whittington is a progressive forward looking centre of excellence in its field. We provide a wide range of services both at mainstream level and in a number of sub-specialities like skin cancers and dermatological surgery, children’s skin clinic, vulval dermatology and contact dermatitis.
We are based in the outpatient department on level 3B of the Whittington Hospital and have a dedicated out-patient surgical theatre, and an outpatient area from which we provide other services like phototherapy, photodynamic therapy and Nurse-led clinics. We also have strong links with other departments within the Whittington e.g. pathology, microbiology, paediatrics and women’s health and beyond including the Department of Plastic and Re-constructive Surgery at the Royal Free and the Department of Oncology and Radiotherapy at UCLH.
We actively participate in the teaching of undergraduate medical students from UCL Medical School both in clinic and through seminars and group tutorials. We also play an active role in postgraduate teaching of General practitioners and those intending to sit the higher examination in Medicine, the MRCP Diploma. We have designed this website so that you can gain a greater understanding of the services we offer in our Dermatology department. We have included links on the right hand side where you can find further information about the services we provide, information about common conditions, information about patient support groups and some leaflets which you may find useful.
