Welcome to the South East of England Phototherapy Network Website

We in the Photodermatology Unit of St.John's Institute of Dermatology, have created the Network in order to link together and provide suport for Phototherapy Practitioners in London and South East. We are happy to have members from further afield as well.

We have changed from being an informal support support network to a full Managed Clinical Network. This means that we have a steering group, who agree and set Clinical Standards to define a minimal acceptable level of patient care. We then organise annual audits of participating units to see if they are meeting the standards.For units who have problems meeting standards we can provide support and help, and for units who meet all the standards this is obviously a reassuring check.We have been overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of our members to join in. Click here, for a detailed description of how the Managed Clinical Network works.

we hope you find the network useful. Please click here if you would like your department to become a member. Below you can see a map of our members.
