Dermatology is the study and treatment of a wide range of skin conditions from minor but irritating conditions like fungal infections to serious conditions such as skin cancer.

The dermatology team at the Royal Free London provides care for adults and children with skin conditions. We also provide a range of specialist clinics. We provide services at Barnet Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital, as well as community dermatology services at venues in Camden and Barnet.

Please note that our team are unable to give clinical advice without a consultation – please visit your GP.


Information about COVID-19 treatments

New treatments are now available for people who are at higher risk of becoming seriously unwell if they contract COVID-19.

The treatments need to be given to patients soon after they have a positive PCR test confirming that they have COVID-19 - before they require admission to hospital.

Patients eligible for the treatment include those who are taking immunosuppressants or immunomodulators. If this includes you, and you have a positive PCR test, you can contact your GP or call 111 to be referred for treatment.

The full details of the new treatments available and what to do if you are eligible are here:

Those who would be eligible for the treatments are being contacted by NHS England and the clinical teams at the Royal Free London will also be writing to patients.

Referral details

Referrals to the psychodermatology service

Your dermatologist or specialist dermatology nurse can refer you to the psychodermatology service. You will be assessed within four weeks, but may then have to wait to start a course of treatment.

Once the psychodermatology service has received a referral letter from your dermatologist or dermatology nurse, we will telephone you to offer an appointment.

Referrals to the teledermatology service

Your GP can refer you to the teledermatology service. See our diagram for more details on what to expect.
