The paediatric dermatology service is also known as the children’s skin clinic. The paediatric dermatology team deal with skin conditions affecting children from birth up to the age of 13. After that age, patients can be transferred to our adult dermatology service in the Royal Victoria Hospital.
We deal with a number of common conditions including:
- atopic eczema
- skin infections
- vascular and pigmented birthmarks
- urticaria (hives)
- hair and nail disorders
- fragile skin disorders
- genetic skin conditions
We have five paediatric dermatology consultants running our children’s skin clinics.
There are three ways you can be referred to the paediatric dermatology service:
- referral from a GP
- referral from another hospital consultant
- referral from the Emergency Department
The paediatric dermatology service is located in the Children’s Hospital on the Royal Hospitals site.
You can contact the service directly by ringing 028 9063 4482.
