The term dermatology relates to any condition that affects the skin. These conditions range from an itchy rash to problems that result in a significantly reduced quality of life such as acne, psoriasis and eczema.
At Healthcare, we have several doctors who have undertaken postgraduate diplomas in dermatology. They will be able to advise you if your condition is not settling with the standard treatments from your usual doctor. We also have a laser clinic at our COSMEDICAL, which can offer very effective treatments for conditions such as acne and rosacea.
Doctors with an interest in dermatology:
If you have a skin lesion that you are worried about and would like to consider having it removed, we have two doctors who undertake these procedures. Dr Partridge and Dr Bodkin are both based at the Rohais Surgery. Dr Partridge runs a specific Mole and Skin Lesion Clinic every Wednesday morning at the Rohais Surgery.
To decide whether surgery is appropriate, please book an appointment to see one of these doctors. The lesion will then assessed, and a date for a minor surgical procedure arranged. However, in some situations, your condition may require specialist input. In which case, we will arrange a referral to our local dermatologist or the Medical Specialist Group.
Our Mole Care Clinic is run by Dr Ed Partridge at the Rohais Surgery on Wednesday mornings. He is accredited by the RCGP and the British Association of Dermatologists in skin lesions and skin surgery. He is also a member of the Guernsey Multidisciplinary Skin Cancer Team.
