This group attempts to stimulate interest in the skin of the elderly. In particular it is hoped to further understanding of skin diseases in the growing segment of the population and recommend treatments and management systems. A further aim is to promote the topic as a subject for postgraduate training and research.


Educational meetings will be held twice annually, once at the time of the BAD annual meeting and once in Spring. A newsletter will be circulated to all members and others on request. An essay competition for trainees and other non-consultants will be held annually (The Kligman Essay Competition).


Membership is open to all health professionals with an interest in the subject.
