The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Dermatology Department is housed in a purpose-built unit and provides dermatology care to patients from a wide catchment area. We provide an outreach clinic to North West Cambridgeshire Hospital in Wisbech, The department has responsibility for teaching University of East Anglia medical students, Cambridge medical students and GP trainees. The department comprises two Consultants, a Specialty Doctor, 3 Hospital Practitioners, a skin cancer specialist nurse and several specialist dermatology nurses.
Skin cancer forms an important part of the departmentís work. Our skin cancer service is supported by visiting Consultant Plastic Surgeons from the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital allowing complex reconstructive surgery to be performed within the department. Clinicians attend regular Skin Cancer Multidisciplinary Team Meetings with a weekly link to the Regional Skin Cancer Meeting in Norwich. There are also combined clinics with the Rheumatology, Gynaecology and Paediatric departments.
