Skin treatments

Our dermatologists can assess and treat your skin problem at a time and place to suit you.

Our consultant dermatologists provide diagnosis and treatment for a range of skin problems such as skin cancer, eczema and psoriasis.

They can also remove cysts, warts and skin tags and reduce scarring that may be the result of burns, injury, previous surgery, acne or chickenpox.


Although acne can't be cured, it can be controlled with treatment.
