Abstract/Summary Rapidly delivered and reliable specialist dermatology advice is needed by accident and emergency departments. Most patients with skin disease can be well managed by non-specialist medical staff who have ready access to specialist dermatologist advice. Teledermatology routinely achieves diagnostic and management outcomes comparable with face to face consultations. A Skin Emergency Telemedicine Service (SETS) can provide a consultation service which is reliable and sufficiently rapid to be clinically useful. This is currently not possible with traditional methods in most centers. A SETS can provide dermatology advice far more cheaply, quickly, efficiently and with many fewer staff then traditional face to face consultation. The equipment and technical expertise to utilize a SETS is already present within the vast majority of modern accident and emergency units.
