The dermatology service follows the NICE guidelines for atopic eczema in children, which is the main condition we see. We also deal with problematic head lice, and other common skin conditions.

The child will then be followed up by either the dermatology nurse or a health care assistant. Reviews are carried out in clinics, school, the home and by telephone.

Our Role

To provide education advice and support to children and families to enable self-management of their condition.

Children where appropriate are encouraged to be involved with their treatment.

The aim is to encourage compliance of treatment.

We demonstrate application of skin treatment, and give advice on the stepped approach to treatment.

We also provide education and support for other professionals.
