BPG Statement Regarding Phototherapy Services During Covid-19 Pandemic

As part of the acute response to preparation for the predicted impact of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic, elective services were largely put on hold and all attention and resources have been redirected to dealing with the demands of COVID-19. This has included virtually all elective dermatology care, with most dermatology departments now only seeing urgent potentially life-impacting cases and dealing with other patients with skin conditions remotely.
