The DMC Community Dermatology Service provides consultant-led, community-based care and advice to NHS patients registered within Barking & Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge CCGs.

We assess and treat a variety of skin problems, delivering high standards of care closer to home and reducing unnecessary hospital appointments.

We provide consultant-led dermatology outpatient clinics for NHS patients who have been referred by their GP in Cambridge. We review all referrals to ensure patients can be effectively managed in our community clinic. Please note this clinic only accepts GP referrals for patients within the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG area.

Our waiting times are typically four to six weeks and we provide extended opening times including clinics at the weekend.

We understand skin conditions have a major effect on people’s lives which is why we aim to provide treatment as quickly as possible, often providing surgical treatment for patients the on the same day.

If you have a reaction to your medication, please read this SJS/TEN Patient Information Leaflet or contact our admin team. In an emergency, please dial 999.
