Welcome,

The Sussex Community Dermatology Service is a specialist NHS service for patients requiring treatment for skin problems in the Sussex area.

Our team Consultant and GP with Special Interest (GPwSI) doctors help to provide patients with rapid access to specialist opinion, and we can also provide care locally for patients, with a choice of 11 different clinic locations across Sussex.

The service is part of a new government initiative to provide patients with Care Closer to Home, and was commissioned by West Sussex Primary Care Trust.

If you work for a GP practice and would like to refer patients to us, please see our referral guidelines for more information about what we can see.
