The community dermatology and minor skin
surgery service is part of County Durham and Darlington Community
Health Services, specialist services directorate.
The service provides treatment and continuing care for a range of
skin conditions for e.g. Eczema, Psoriasis, and will support those
patients with long term skin conditions by promoting self care. We
