About The Harley Street Dermatology Clinic
All the skin specialists at The
Harley Street Dermatology Clinic are consultants, having obtained
membership of the Royal College of Physicians and a Certificate of Completion
of Specialist Training in Dermatology. They are all members of the British
Association of Dermatologists, the Royal Society of Medicine and the General
Medical Council and have a license to practice medicine.
At The Harley Street Dermatology Clinic they know how big an
impact skin disease can have on your life and consequently how important the
right treatment can be. This is one of the reasons why their doctors are all
consultants and not junior doctors or trainees.
Consultant dermatologists spend their professional lives
exclusively treating skin disease. This gives them the highest level of
expertise and experience in the field of dermatology. An accurate and early
diagnosis is more likely to lead to an appropriate treatment and a great
improvement in your quality of life.
All the clinic’s consultants are trained in
paediatric dermatology (skin disease in children) and about a quarter of their
work is with children.
