Friends Dermatology Centre
The Dermatology department is based at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital and offers a wide range general and specialist outpatient services, supported by a dedicated team of specialist and dermatology nurses. The department is actively involved in junior doctor/nursing teaching and in recruiting patients for clinical research studies. Some clinics are also offered at other sites throughout the trust.
We are located on the main floor of the 1937 Building.
Please use the main entrance and follow the signs straight ahead.
Urgent Skin Cancer Clinic
We provide a rapid access clinic three times a week at the Friends Dermatology Centre at Canterbury for any patient referred by the GP with suspicious skin lesion. In line with government guidelines this appointment should be within 2 weeks.
A history is taken and examination performed, then if necessary we can perform diagnostic or curative surgery of suspicious lesions on the day of attendance if we have capacity.
