Dermatology is the medicine concerned with diagnosing and
treating diseases of the skin, hair and nails.
The Bay of Plenty District Health Board has an outpatient
dermatology service based at Tauranga and Whakatāne Hospitals, for
the assessment, education and treatment of dermatological
conditions, particularly those that are of a chronic nature.
A referral from a GP or other primary care practitioner is
required for this service.
