Welcome to Dermatology

The Dermatology Department forms part of the Directorate of Specialised Medicine and has the responsibility of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of dermatological conditions. There is a multidisciplinary team in place with close liaison with primary care and a strong focus on teaching and research.

The Department provides secondary care services to the population of Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan and the surrounding Gwent Valley, with clinics at University Hospital of Wales and University Hospital of Llandough. It also provides a tertiary service for paediatric dermatology and complex surgical intervention for malignant disorders.

The speciality is predominantly outpatient focused; however there is an increase in demand for surgical intervention and treatment of day cases secondary to advances in drug therapies.
