The dermatology service is based in the outpatient department of Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital and Royal Hampshire County Hospital Winchester with satellite services running at Alton and Andover. All units have their own dedicated day treatment unit and a range of minor operating theatres.
The service is a consultant led service on all sites supported by a team of specialist nurses.
Day treatment procedures include minor operations performed by the consultants and a variety of treatments carried out by the nurses, including combinations of ultraviolet light treatment and application of topical treatments, baths and ionotophoresis for hyperhidrosis.
The nurse specialists also provide both telephone and face to face consultation advice and education to patients suffering from chronic skin diseases.
