Local health services, including dermatology services, are commissioned by local clinical commissioning groups, taking into account the healthcare needs of their populations and having regard to National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidelines.

It is for the National Health Service in Manchester to determine the provision of dermatology services locally.

We understand that South and Central Manchester, along with Trafford, clinical commissioning groups have commissioned a new community dermatology service to increase capacity and reduce waiting times.
