Further advice and guidance

Healthcare professionals and patients who are registered with the service can get advice and guidance on diagnosed chronic skin condition. Please email the service or call us on 0117 9449782 or 0117 9449783, leaving your name, phone number and a brief message and one of the team will get back to you.

Who is this service for?

The service is available to anyone from birth upwards with a skin condition, who is registered with a GP in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

What we do

Our Dermatology Service diagnoses skin conditions and offers support, education and treatment planning for people with chronic skin conditions. The team consists of GPs with Extended Roles (GPwER) in Dermatology and Dermatology Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS).

You might see one of our GPs for help with diagnosing a skin condition, or for skin surgery to help diagnose what’s wrong.

Our Clinical Nurse Specialists run clinics throughout Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire for people with a diagnosed skin condition. The nurses provide a holistic approach to care, and offer advice and support to help you manage both the physical and psychological symptoms of your skin condition. The nurse will also agree a treatment plan for your skin condition with you.

The team offers treatment for:

  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Scabies
  • Actinic keratosis
  • Dry skin/itch

How do I access this service?

You can be referred by your GP or any other health care professional, including health visitors, community nurses, practice nurses, and podiatrists, or by our colleagues in secondary care.

The service is available throughout Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire and the team offers a variety of locations for you to be seen – whether it is nearer to where you live or work.  Our nurses also offer home visits for people who are housebound and unable to attend a clinic.
