Have your say

MEMBERS of the public will be given a rare opportunity to get under the skin of an NHS department.

Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust’s dermatology department is holding a special open day to offer people an insight into what services the department offers.

Visitors will be able to take advantage of skin cancer screening facilities and advice on sun protection.

The event takes place on Thursday, June 16, from 11.30am to 6pm at the dermatology department at St Mary’s Hospital, Milton, Portsmouth.

Sam Hunt, consultant dermatologist, said: ‘We’re delighted to be able to show the Trust’s members the range of services and facilities we can offer patients.

‘Skin care is extremely important, especially in the summer months, so we are hoping many people take the opportunity to come and find out more and speak to one of our team.’

People will be able to have a Q and A session with staff and speak to various skin condition charities that will also be there on the day.
