Patient’s treatments/appointments will be prioritised and some treatments will be minimal or not available until further notice. All appointments within the next eight weeks are now cancelled.  You will be contacted with a change of appointment via telephone or letter in due course, and there will be minimal consultations, which will be prioritised. Telephone consultations may replace visits to Alder Hey for prioritised patients. For the latest information around COVID-19, please go to our dedicated Information Hub here.

Our dermatology service cares for children with common or uncommon dermatological conditions, and we run a range of specialist clinics.

We offer appointments from 8am to 6pm on weekdays, giving flexibility to families and reduce the need for children to miss time at school.P1280493.JPG
