Dermatology is the diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases, including acne, psoriasis, warts, skin infections and skin cancers.
Our clinics deal with general dermatological problems and include rapid access for patients with suspected malignant melanoma and squamous cell carcinomas.
Referrals to the Dermatology team can be made via your GP. Please advise your GP if you wish to be referred to us.
Our clinics are led by consultants at Trafford General Hospital, Stretford Memorial Hospital and Altrincham General Hospital. There are also three minor operation clinics held per week.
We also offer an acne and cryosurgery service run by Sister Ann Booth, our dermatology specialist nurse.
The Dermatology service has close links with wound healing and runs joint clinics with Tissue Viability Nurse Rob Oldfield for leg ulcers and the Trafford Community Nursing Team for children with eczema.
We also work closely with the following surgeons for benign and malignant skin tumours:
There are two Consultant Dermatologists (Dr Jennifer Yell and Dr Farzana Nayeemuddin), an Associate Specialist and a General Practitioner with a special interest in dermatology.
