The Primary Care Dermatology Society was formed in 1994 by a group of GP skin specialists who recognised the need for a forum in which GPs could exchange views on primary care dermatology, develop skills and progress clinical research in this exciting and developing field of medicine.
In 2019 membership was opened to the wider primary care team moving away from being a solely GP focused education provider.
Our main focus is education and the Society holds many conferences all over the UK. In addition the website is recognised as a world leader in the field of dermatology and includes a wide library of pictures along with A-Z of dermatology conditions, diagnostic tables, treatment & management pathways.

Doublebase Dayleve Gel is an enhanced long-lasting gel formulation containing 30% oils, a high level of glycerol, and povidone, a film forming agent which helps to seal moisture into the skin. The combined action of these ingredients results in an effective, long-lasting emollient.
Doublebase Dayleve Gel is clinically proven to be effective for 12 hours.1,2 This means that even when patients only apply their emollient twice a day, you can have the confidence that their skin can stay moisturised and protected throughout the day, or night. With only twice a day application, a Doublebase Dayleve Gel 500g pack is likely to last longer than traditional 500g creams applied 3 to 4 times a day, meaning fewer packs are required.
Doublebase Dayleve Gel is ideal for school children, the elderly and adults who may struggle to reapply emollients throughout the day. Doublebase Dayleve Gel is easily absorbed into the skin, making it convenient to apply, helping improve patient adherence.

Adex Gel emollient offers an effective, simple and different approach to the treatment and management of mild to moderate eczema and psoriasis.
Adex Gel emollient can also help reduce inflammation and redness because Adex Gel provides added extra anti‑inflammatory action.
Adex Gel is a highly moisturising and protective emollient which also contains an added, ancillary anti‑inflammatory medicinal substance to help reduce inflammation and redness. Its emollient properties are derived from a high oil content and from the inclusion of glycerol, as a humectant. The added ancillary anti‑inflammatory action is provided by nicotinamide, a medicinal substance which is a form of vitamin B3, which has been shown to exhibit noticeable anti‑inflammatory action.
Adex Gel is a versatile first‑line treatment for dry skin prone to inflammation. Adex Gel can be used all over and for as long as necessary – whether only occasionally, such as during flares, or continuously.
