The phototherapy unit at the outpatient department in King Edward VII hospital is a clinical unit designed to provide the full range of phototherapy, with ultraviolet light being used to treat patients with skin diseases including:
• Polymorphic light eruption.
The unit is staffed between 8.00am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday. We provide localised or whole body therapies with PUVA, and narrowband UVB. The unit also provides iontophoresis, a treatment for hyperhidrosis (excess sweating of hands and feet).
Patients need to be seen in dermatology outpatients by one of our consultants first before getting referred for phototherapy treatment.
