Dermatology (Skin conditions)

Ward 5 New Victoria Wing

Contact: (0191) 282 5599 - Sister J Cutmore

Ward 5 is an 8-bedded Dermatology inpatient ward which looks after adults who require specialist inpatient care for chronic (persistent) or severe skin conditions.

You may also be required to stay on the ward if you are receiving new specialist treatment so that the ward staff can closely monitor progress with your condition, and make sure you receive any support and advice you might need at any time.

We care for a wide range of skin diseases which include common conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, leg ulcers and blistering conditions as well as more severe conditions such as Erythroderma and Toxic Epidermal Necroylsis.

Younger patients who require treatment on a Saturday or Sunday will be seen on Ward 5 as the Children’s Outpatient Department is closed at weekends.
