Paediatric Dermatology

Dr Drummond has a special interest in paediatric dermatology (skin, hair and nail problems in children), and prioritises referrals for these conditions.

She has previously trained at the Royal Alexandra Hospital for Children in Sydney and worked in Community Child Health in Edinburgh, UK.

She has been awarded a Diploma in Community Child Health (Edinburgh).

She has a close working relationship with paediatric dermatologists around Australia and is involved in the Australian Paediatric Dermatology group.

Dr Drummond offers assessment and management of dermatological conditions in babies and children including:

  • Rashes of all types
  • Eczema/dermatitis
  • Psoriasis
  • Acne
  • Mole checks
  • Assessment of lesions (lumps and bumps)
  • Pigmentary disorders ( conditions causing darkening or whitening of the skin)
  • Scalp conditions and hair loss
  • Nail conditions
  • Vascular abnormalities (infantile haemangiomas and vascular malformations)
  • Birthmarks
  • Genetic skin disorders
  • Vulval (genital) skin conditions

 

If preferred, paediatric patients with skin disorders can be seen at the Paediatric Dermatology Outpatients Clinic at Canberra Hospital.

Dr Drummond conducts a public outpatient clinic every fortnight at the Paediatric Outpatients Department, Canberra Hospital.

Referrals should be sent to Central outpatients at Canberra Hospital: ACTHealthCentralOutpatient-Referrals@act.gov.au

Dr Drummond does not directly manage the bookings for the Outpatients clinic. Enquiries about appointment dates should be directed to the hospital by the email addresses above.

Please note that if Dr Drummond sees your child in the hospital outpatient clinic, he/she is legally a patient of the hospital, and not a patient of Dr Drummond. Dr Drummond does not keep the medical records at her private practice and cannot answer queries or provide prescriptions or pathology request forms. 

Dermatology registrars (advanced trainees) and the Dermatology Advanced Practice Nurse conduct the clinic under the supervision of Dr Drummond.

We would like to advise that all patients who have chosen to be cared for through The Canberra Hospital Outpatient clinics, must contact the Hospital regarding any concerns, advice or prescriptions following your appointment.
