Children's Dermatology

Welcome to Children's Dermatology


The Leeds Paediatric Dermatology Team see children and young people aged 0-18 with a range of Dermatological Conditions from Leeds and the wider region of North and West Yorkshire. 

Our Paediatric Dermatology Nursing Team has expanded somewhat in the last 6 years from 1 nurse, now consisting of 4 clinical nurse specialists and a senior clinical support worker. Meet the Team.

We run medical and nurse-led clinics and also have a dedicated dressing clinic which is run by our Senior Clinical Support Worker (SCSW). This dedicated clinic allows our SCSW to demonstrate topical treatments and dressing applications for patients and their families. This service receives excellent feedback, and our Trust is one of the only Trusts we are aware of that provides this service.

We hold our clinics in both the Outpatient Department at Chapel Allerton Hospital and the Paediatric Outpatient Department at LGI.

We also liaise with other professionals such as community nurses, health visitors, social workers and GP’s as well as carrying out school and home visits as required.

We are a passionate team who are committed to developing the service to ensure we are providing the highest level of care to our patients and their families.
