Hertfordshire is a fine blend of traditional and modern, an ethos we should reflect in treating a wide range of medical needs.
Patients come to our clinic from across the UK, yet we are also a local service. Supporting people in towns and villages across Hertfordshire.
Data tells us that a high number of those visiting us come from Hatfield, Watford, the areas around Hemel Hempstead, St Albans, Hertford and Stevenage. Representing a cross section of those living in the county.
Our consultants are respected, support staff amongst the best, although we believe the reason patients visit is our ethos. A dermatologist in Hertfordshire should ensure diagnosis and treatment at the highest level are available to all.
Age, gender, or nationality should be no barrier in a diverse region, neíther should people be offered anything other than the latest facilities.
Skin Care Network were the first UK private clinic to offer confocal microscopy, an advanced technique to look beneath your skin. Optical tomography and electrical impedance spectroscopy are readily available.
The knowledge of a consultant dermatologist rightly leads all decisions, although dermatology has been revolutionised by digital imaging. This helps our patients across a diagnostic range and in screening for, or detecting early stage skin cancer.
We are a recognised skin cancer centre and the medical skills this requires are available for all cases, a skin condition, or an aesthetic need. Any individual requirement patients have is given the same status.
A Supportive Environment
Privacy for consultations and confidentiality in every respect are a priority, treatment should feel safe. A detailed approach to cleanliness and a welcoming atmosphere help to ensure your visit feels right.
Friends, or relatives are welcome to attend consultations if you wish and we treat all the family. From the youngest member, to their grandparents.
Treatment rooms, or day patient facilities are well equipped and can support complex procedures, such as Mohs surgery. Sterilisation methods are well managed, equipment is up to date and of good quality.
Above all, patients are listened to, treatment decisions are shared. All our staff have as much time as you need to talk through any concerns and we carry out an annual survey, to appreciate the views of our patients.
Comments, or suggestions are welcome from all Hertfordshire dermatology patients. Your health and wellbeing are unique to you, they are best supported by care based on mutual understanding.
