Dermatology

Bristol Dermatology provides a wide range of services for the diagnosis and care of people with skin diseases, including skin cancer. The services are provided by a team of consultants, associate specialists, specialist nurses and GPs with a specialist interest across venues in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. We welcome feedback on our service.

Access/referrals

There is no direct access for new patients requiring a dermatology opinion. All new patients need a medical referral.

Letter and Choose and Book referrals

New appointments are ranked as urgent or routine when the referral letter is received.

Two week wait skin cancer referral service

All patients with a mark or lump on their skin that could be a melanoma or invasive squamous cell skin cancer are referred through the electronic two week wait system and seen within that period.

On call service

GPs and local consultants have access to an on-call dermatology service through the UH Bristol switchboard or through the teledermatology service.

This service is designed to aid GPs manage patient skin problems close to home, promptly with the additional expertise of a consultant dermatologist, but without a visit to the hospital.
