  • About the service

    The Skin Service is led by a consultant physician, supported by a team of doctors and other health professionals.
  • Aims

    The improvement of skin problems and reduction of conventional medication are the aims of this service. Because the clinic is staffed by trained health professionals, our treatments are integrated with conventional methods.
  • What skin conditions are treated?

    Conditions commonly seen in this clinic include:

    • Acne
    • Angioedema
    • Eczema and other forms of dermatitis
    • Hydradenitis
    • Lichen planus and lichen sclerosus
    • Palmo-plantar pustulosis
    • Psoriasis
    • Prurigo (itching)
    • Rosacea
    • Urticaria (hives, nettle rash)
  • What do we not treat?

    We do not treat skin cancer including malignant melanoma and basal cell carcinomas. We do not perform skin biopsies.
  • Treatments

    Many people do not like having to depend on drugs, especially steroid creams. In a large survey 68% of patients with skin conditions reported an improvement in their condition, and about two-thirds had been able to reduce or stop conventional medication since attending the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine.

    Individual treatment packages are designed for each patient including conventional and complementary approaches to skin problems.

  • Your appointment

    If you are unable to attend your appointment please let us know at least 48 hours beforehand so we can offer your appointment to someone else. If you do not attend your appointment without telling us we may refer you back to your GP.

    Following your treatment you will be referred back to your GP.

  • Professional education and training

    The RLHIM is also a teaching hospital and from time to time other healthcare professionals may observe in outpatient clinics as part of a training course. We will always ask your permission for students to sit in during your consultation. You do not have to have students present if you would prefer not to.
