Clinical Services Unit (CSU) provides advice and support to our BAD members and their hospital departments with regard to dermatology service development, improvement and provision.
The unit is led by the Clinical Vice President, Dr. Tanya Bleiker, and our Clinical Services Manager, Tania von Hospenthal. Supporting the unit are two clinical committees for clinical services and skin cancer along with 13 BAD regional representatives. This wealth of experience and knowledge provides us with an excellent resource to advise on the following service areas:
Service provision (service reviews, planning, needs assessments etc)
Commissioning procurement and contracts
Policy changes within the NHS, white paper and legislation changes
Mediation service for BAD members
Cancer service issues
Private practice issues
GPwSI accreditation and practice
Experience has taught us that often the solution to a problem is easier to find if we can help early in the process rather than when a crisis subsequently develops. It is also equally beneficial to hear from our members when things are going well, so we can share relevant advice with other members. Please rest assured that any issues of confidentiality will be respected.

Please note: if you are a patient seeking information on your skin condition and treatment pathways please see the Public Information section of our website or phone 020 7383 0266. We are unable to give patients clinical advice or a second opinion on their skin condition. This is a matter for your doctor.
