Staff Profile

Dr Philip Hampton

Associate Clinical Lecturer


Dr Hampton is an NHS Consultant Dermatologist at the Royal Victoria Infirmary and an associate lecturer at Newcastle University. He is active in a number of research projects in close collaboration with university colleagues. Recent projects included 1. An observational study that demonstrated the association between alcohol consumption and having worse eczema and psoriasis 2. A clinical trial showed for the first time that a form of light therapy,  Narrow Band UVB was an effective treatment for palmar hand eczema and  3.  Work continues on the evaluation of a mobile phone app for skin self monitoring; . We are investigating how self-monitoring can benefit patients in the management of their skin problems and also whether the app can be used to provide better access to specialist care, in the first instance, in patients with acne. This project is in collaboration with Prof Patrick Olivier in the School of Computing.
