Gwent Dermatology Patient Panel

The Gwent Dermatology Patient Panel is here to serve patients with all types of skin conditions in Gwent and Powys.

This is to include access to patient involvement in both education and research together with the participation and advocacy of their NHS dermatology services.

Membership is open to all dermatology patients, their carers, relatives and anyone with an involvement within the field of dermatology.


Please see the attached information from Dr. Stephanie Frances of the All Wales Therapeutics and Toxicology Centre. There is a questionnaire is to help them with their work in improving patient engagement and to gain their feedback on their individual situations.


The GDPP in Welsh at last!

Our GDPP Welsh language site is live although remains under development.

Translation from English to Welsh has been made possible thanks to volunteer support along with the use of some of our All Wales Lottery Funding.

Unfortunately this has run out and we hope to gain more funding to continue.
