About the Centre
The National Skin Centre (NSC) is an outpatient specialist dermatological centre with a team of dermatologists who have the experience and expertise to treat every skin condition. NSC started its operations on 1 November 1988 after taking over the treatment of skin diseases from Middle Road Hospital. We handle a patient load of about 1,000 patients daily. We are a public health institution and a member of the National Healthcare Group (NHG), sharing the NHG vision of "Adding years of healthy life".
As a tertiary health care institution, the NSC provides specialised dermatological services, trains medical students and post graduates, and undertakes research in dermatology.
We conduct Continuing Medical Education for doctors and paramedical personnel. Our researchers ensure that patient management is best tailored to the local population.
