Paediatric Dermatology

Dr Drummond has a special interest in paediatric dermatology (skin, hair and nail problems in children). She has worked at the Royal Alexandra Hospital for Children in Sydney and Community Child Health, Edinburgh. She has been awarded a Diploma in Community Child Health (Edinburgh).

She has a close working relationship with paediatric dermatologists at Sydney Childrens’ Hospital and The Childrens’ Hospital at Westmead.

Dr Drummond offers assessment and management of skin, hair, and nail conditions in babies and children including:

  • Rashes of all types
  • Eczema/dermatitis
  • Psoriasis
  • Acne
  • Mole checks
  • Assessment of lesions (lumps and bumps)
  • Pigmentation disorders
  • Hair loss
  • Vascular abnormalities (infantile haemangiomas and vascular malformations)
  • Birthmarks
  • Genetic skin disorders
  • Vulval (genital) skin conditions are also seen

Dr Drummond conducts  public outpatient paediatric dermatology clinics every fortnight at the Paediatric Outpatients Department, Canberra Hospital.

Referrals should be sent to Central outpatients at Canberra Hospital:

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. Dr Drummond does not keep the medical records at her private practice, and cannot answer queries or provide prescriptions or pathology request forms. 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.

If a problem is urgent, you should consult with your general practitioner or present to the Emergency department.

If you would prefer your child to be seen as a private patient, Dr Drummond sees paediatric patients in private practice at Drummond Dermatology, Phillip and on the NSW South Coast at the Queen St Medical Centre, Moruya. For this service a fee is charged. Dr Drummond’s practice will directly coordinate appointments and care.

Day Stay admission to Canberra Hospital can be arranged for commencement of propanolol treatment for the treatment of infantile haemangiomas, for biopsies and excisions under sedation, and for wet dressings for the treatment of eczema flares.
