A BRAND new £3.5 million unit at Solihull Hospital has opened its doors to patients – securing the area one of the leading dermatology centres in the UK.
The new unit includes state-of-the-art facilities and has been purpose-built to suit the needs of patients with skin cancer and other skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis.
Among the benefits of the new unit are three new skin surgery theatres, increasing surgical capacity and allowing for a more efficient and seamless journey for patients. In addition, there is a state-of the-art skin allergy testing facility, phototherapy and integrated consulting and treatment rooms.
Dr Irshad Zaki, consultant dermatologist and clinical director, said it was a ‘very exciting’ time for the highly-acclaimed service.
He said: “Having this fantastic new unit will enhance further the service we can provide to our patients and puts Solihull Hospital at the forefront of dermatology treatment, not just in the Midlands, but in the country as a whole.”
The new facility is located at the north entrance of Solihull Hospital on the first floor opposite the education centre.
