Dematology at Derby Private Health

Dermatology

We offer a wide range of dermatology services at Derby Private Health

At Derby Private Health, we offer a wide range of dermatology procedures that can cure short-term skin conditions, or help patients manage the more long-term skin conditions with a variety of nurse-led treatment clinics.

Procedures including management of rashes and lumps and skin grafts are catered for, as well as more complex conditions, including the care for skin cancer patients.


The dermatology mole removal clinic, which was formerly based at London Road Community Hospital, will be relocated to Derby Private Health as of May 1st 2018. All private dermatology clinics will take place with one of our consultants at Derby Private Health.

For further information about consultations and prices, please contact our admin team on 01332 785200 or email dhft.privatepatients@nhs.net.
