The dermatology service treats conditions and diseases of the skin, ears, feet and nails.
Southfields’ dermatology service provides a comprehensive referral service for all aspects of dermatology. Our Specialist team diagnoses and manages a wide range of dermatological presentations and benefits from close liaison with the oncology and internal medicine services to address potential underlying causes of more complex dermatology cases. In addition, access to Specialists in soft tissue surgery allows for the surgical management of appropriate cases such as excessive skin folds and some ear disease.
The service accepts referrals in all aspects of dermatology including
- Atopy including intradermal skin testing
- Recurrent or unresponsive pyoderma
- Recurrent otitis externa
- Parasitic skin disease
- Skin neoplasia
- Immune mediated skin disease
- Undiagnosed pruritis and hair loss
- Undiagnosed skin lesions
On very rare occasions where dermatology patients require hospitalisation, Southfields provides unrivalled care with nurses and other clinical support staff present 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. This level of care and support enables us to optimise patient management at all times.
