The unit has a growing reputation in the study of lymphoma, melanoma and alopecia and offers extensive laboratory tests and investigations in these areas.
This department is a major referral centre for both general and specialist dermatopathology. More than 14,000 cases a year are processed by the laboratory and reviewed by specialist consultant dermatopathologists. Furthermore, the laboratory provides support for the Mohs micrographic surgery unit, which is now one of the largest Mohs laboratories in the country in terms of work volume and predominantly involves the removal of facial skin cancer.
