Update on dermatology services at the Trust

Date: 03 October 2018

News update image

The dermatology service at the Trust is experiencing serious challenges in managing current demand.

Ensuring that our patients receive treatment in a timely manner is of the upmost importance to us and we accept that the delays some patients are currently experiencing are unacceptable.

We have agreed a joint plan with our commissioners to address these issues and improve waiting times. We have also notified our commissioners of our intention to stop providing dermatology services at the Trust from 1 April 2019.

Please be assured that if you have an appointment before this date, you will be seen at the Trust. We will continue to accept referrals from GPs.

As soon as a new provider has been chosen we will work with our patients and the new provider to ensure that their care is not impacted in any way.
