New Dermatology Service To Open At Midlands Regional Hospital

It'll be the first HSE-run service of its kind in the county.

A new dermatology service is set to open at Tullamore Regional Hospital.

The hospital’s general manager, Catríona McDonald has confirmed there is a plan in place to launch a limited service in 2022.

However, local independent TD Carol Nolan says the scale of the service remains unknown and is calling for the details of what kind of care pathways will or will not be provided;

"As I understand it, the National Clinical Programme for Dermatology is working very closely with the Acute Hospitals Division to deliver the kind of treatment that is urgently required by people who live with dermatological conditions such as acne, psoriasis and dermatitis.

"I will continue to engage with the HSE and with MRHT to ensure that it is fully supported in the roll-out of the dermatology service."
