Welcome to Brighton & Sussex Dermatology Service

Brighton and Sussex Dermatology Service is a new, patient focused service for patients in Brighton & Hove. The service provides assessment, diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions at several sites in Brighton & Hove and Sussex.

The service will benefit from a brand new dedicated office and administrative team to manage all patient bookings, GP correspondence and telephone enquiries. The clinical team has also expanded significantly which will enable us to reduce the waiting-times for patients and provide an excellent level of service.

Our clinics are led by Consultant Dermatologists with expertise in dermatological surgery and skin cancer management. Our Consultants also work alongside several Doctors who have specialist training in Dermatology and Nurses who have many years of experience in this field.

Having several clinic locations around Brighton & Hove and Sussex enables the service to focus on making appointments convenient for patients, whilst they still receive the highest standard of care from the very best Dermatologists.

The dermatology department is involved in the recruitment of patients for clinical research studies as well as medical student and junior doctor tuition.

We invest a great deal of resources into our whole team, which allows us to offer a one-stop service for skin cancer management for many patients; this includes performing diagnostic biopsies and treatments on the first visit. Efficient use of our doctors and nurses enable us to keep our waiting list times down.

Suspected skin cancer referrals are seen urgently within dedicated clinics and always within a two week time frame. If required, day surgery can be organised at two sites; Brighton General Hospital or Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead. The location of the surgery depends on the complexity of the case and we also take the patient’s personal preference into account.

We appreciate the importance of effective communication and always ensure our patients are well informed. We invite patients to use our Patient Helpline should you have any worries or concerns and we always welcome feedback relating to any aspect of your care.
