The British Teledermatology Subcommittee is an integral part of the BAD Clinical Services Unit, providing guidance and support for clinicians and organisations in the development and optimisation of teledermatology services to improve the delivery of patient care.

Recent developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) have lead to an AI Working Party Group being set up to look at the development of AI in dermatology services and produce national guidance for its use. Please do check this page later for further information on this.

For further information or any queries, please contact the clinical services unit directly -


The NHSE Teledermatology Roadmap for 2020/21 sets out what systems can do to optimise teledermatology triage and Advice & Guidance to help them safely manage new patient demand while restoring their dermatology services. The roadmap is available on The Elective Care Community of Practice Dermatology work space on the Future NHS Collaboration Platform here

This platform is open to anyone working in or for health and social care Join here

The platform enables different organisations to connect and collaborate more effectively, including commissioners, providers, senior management, frontline staff, clinicians, health and social care colleagues, and other interested stakeholders.
