Isle of Wight Skin Clinic Wins Prestigious National Award

The Newport-based Lighthouse Clinic team won the second National Dermatology Award where they competed against medical professionals from across the country.

The initiative triumphed in the Dermatology Team of the Year category at the 2022 Quality in Care (QiC) Dermatology Awards held virtually earlier this month.

Glenn Smith, Clinical Director, said: “These awards are a testament to how hard our team has worked over the past two years to minimize disruption during Covid and continue to provide innovative, efficient and caring services to our local population.

“None of this would have been possible without our excellent working relationship with the local community, medical practices, our commissioning team and the IW NHS Trust.

“We look forward to building on the success of these awards with further innovation and engagement with our local community in the months and years to come.”

The judges said: “This entry from the Isle of Wight is a brilliant depiction of a very efficient team and the judges felt there was a lot to learn from their innovative way of working and their approach to care.

“The use of remote consultation, teledermatology and integrated care has been particularly impressive. Positive and uplifting!”
