The new Skin Care Cymru Website has now been officially launched!
The Deputy Minister for Health Vaughan Gething introduced the occasion which was attended by a unique gathering of some of the most important figures in the field of dermatology and plastic surgery – patients, clinicians, academics, patient support groups and many others.
We are pleased to launch our new look site – we are going to be continually updating the content here though, so please check back frequently!
Our web-site will be translated into Welsh shortly – please be patient.
Bydd y wefan yn cael ei gyfiaethu cyn bo hir. Diolch am eich amynedd.
Patient stories – if you’d like to have your story told (see Patient Stories Page) please get in touch. We really want to hear from you.
