A dermatologist is an expert in diagnosing and treating diseases of the skin, hair and nails. To become a consultant requires between 8-12 years of additional training after completing five years of medical school. One third of this time involves training in general medicine and becoming a member of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP) or Paediatricians whilst the other two thirds are spent specialising in skin disease. This training period may include undertaking a further research degree such as a PhD, and culminates in receiving a Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training in Dermatology.
At the Harley Street Dermatology Clinic we know how big an impact skin disease can have on your life and consequently how important the right treatment can be. This is one of the reasons why our doctors are all consultants and not junior doctors or trainees.
Consultant dermatologists spend their professional life exclusively treating skin disease. Consequently, in addition to the training outlined above, this gives them the highest level of expertise and experience in the field of dermatology. An accurate and early diagnosis is more likely to lead to an appropriate treatment and a great improvement in your quality of life.
All of our consultants are trained in paediatric dermatology (skin disease in children) and about a quarter of our work is with children. We recognize how much disruption to family life an unwell child can cause and early accurate treatment and diagnosis is often the perfect solution.
The Harley Street Dermatology Clinic is located in the centre of London. If you are uninsured (i.e. self-funding), you can book an appointment directly by Phone or by email.
If you have medical health insurance, you will need a referral from a General Practitioner and to obtain an authorisation code from your insurance company before you can be seen or treated. Without these, you may find that your insurer will not reimburse your costs.
Our doctors are registered with all the major insurers in the UK and internationally.
