Our clinic was founded in 2006, although the principle and several consultants had worked together before then. Their association with The Royal Free and other professional links an asset in creating continuity.
They had built one of the leading teams in the UK for dermatology and skin cancer treatment, by combining world class expertise with local care. An approach they wished to make available to the community in Hertfordshire.
Our skin deserves the best medical care and is the most visible part of our body, so warrants fine aesthetic care. That the two were considered as separate made no sense, especially with opportunities from advances in medical science.
Treating an aggressive growth on your skin can be vital but so can restoring an area you are unhappy with. Being content with how you look is part of confidence, of wellbeing.
Alongside respected dermatological consultants, we bring together specialist knowledge on laser treatment, facial rejuvenation, or reconstruction, ophthalmology, paediatric and aesthetic skin care.
The nurses you will meet at our clinic tend to be more than nurses. Highly trained and skilled in their own right, able to provide complex treatments. They are also well briefed on how we consider the psychological aspects of dermatology.
Alongside individual aspects, the demography and medical sector focus of Hertfordshire pointed to benefits the latest equipment could bring. Our advanced, confocal microscope is an example, the only one in a UK private clinic.
Being able to literally look beneath your skin is valuable, as are other diagnostic facilities, not least our consultant histopathologist. Successful treatment comes from prompt, accurate diagnosis.
For our medical patients and cosmetic clients, the advantage is clear. Everything your skin needs under one roof, a high level of expertise and most importantly, the right people working together.
The best staff in any field of work share a key concept, they don’t have all the answers. They may lead their field, yet will still see situations where knowledge from other disciplines can help.
Offering this within one organisation, one clinic, is a major asset. We do not know of any other facility in the Hertfordshire area to match the breadth of specialisms, helpful for our staff and for patients.
Our dream that a facility could be created to provide skin care for life has materialised. From childhood to retirement, for dermatology, for skin cancer treatment, or to see the natural glow return to your skin.
Quality Of Care
Alongside regulatory bodies such as the Care Quality Commission, our dermatology clinic is recognised by major insurers. Together with referrals from them, we accept direct referrals from doctors and aesthetic specialists.
Insurers can cover a range of medical care and a few aspects of cosmetic treatment, our consultants fees are within their guidelines. Where other fees apply, we support total transparency and they are discussed before any commitment.
We also ensure that time is available, to carefully consider your wishes, part of a caring service ethos. The majority of treatments begin with a personal consultation, focused on effective solutions.
Our Hertfordshire dermatology staff are chosen because they want to work with the people they treat, to listen and understand. Their support is based on your life, you are welcome to talk to us at any time, or arrange a convenient appointment.
