They run a number of general and specialist dermatology clinics and deal with a wide range of conditions and diseases affecting the skin, mucous membranes, hair and nails.
Some of our specialists also perform dermatological surgical procedures such as Mohs micrographic surgery (a type of surgery for removing certain types of skin cancer), laser surgery and some cosmetic surgery.

We appreciate that many patients are currently worried about the COVID-19 pandemic and want information and advice to help make decisions about their own care, and those around them.
We are receiving a lot of calls and are doing our best to respond. In the meantime, please see the following advice before contacting us.COVID-19 advice for dermatology patients
Our skin specialists have expertise in many rare and complex conditions. Many are due to allergies and immune deficiencies, genetic conditions, oral disease and melanoma (skin cancer) amongst many other problems.
Some skin problems may be caused by other conditions such as:
- auto-immune issues eg. connective tissue disease
- neurological problems
- coeliac disease
Our dermatologists hold joint clinics with colleagues from other specialties to ensure you receive the right care at the right time.
Our joint and other speciality clinics, are ideally placed to support the leading clinical research for which Newcastle has a global reputation.
Many of our dermatologists are honorary clinicians and involved in clinical research due to our close working partnership with Newcastle University. This allows us to pioneer new approaches to diagnosis and treatment, ultimately improving the care we offer for our patients.
Some of our clinicians work in tandem with the University team to understand more about how ageing contributes to skin problems. One of the priority research themes for CARU is skin and oral disease. The research in this area is led by Professor Muzlifah Haniffa.
