Dermatology team wins national award

Guy’s and St Thomas’ national XP service was named dermatology team of the year at the British Medical Journal Awards.

 

The team were recognised for providing outstanding care to patients with Xeroderma Pigmentosum. People with the condition are not able to repair the damage caused to their skin by the ultraviolet part of daylight.

 

Dr Bob Sarkany says: “This award is recognition of the dedication and ingenuity of the XP team. The team’s work is leading to patients having a longer life expectancy.”
