Dermatology Team of the Year

Do you work in a team that has made an outstanding contribution to the treatment and management of people with skin conditions?

Teamwork plays a critical and growing role in high-quality care for skin conditions.

This award recognises the value of outstanding innovative team achievements that can be multidisciplinary or collaborative team working and which have measurably improved care for people with skin conditions and their families and/or carers.

  • Multidisciplinary teams, such as primary and secondary care collaborative working to identify dermatology issues early and avoid long term complications
  • Non-traditional collaborations, e.g. technology, IT and communications
  • Digital and technology initiatives: should be UK or Ireland based (even if they are used globally)
