Personal profile

Joyce Leman is an experienced dermatology consultant.

Following specialist training initially in Edinburgh and then Glasgow her first consultant post was in Forth Valley. Thereafter, she spent more than a decade in Glasgow where she co ran a severe psoriasis and combined dermatology / rheumatology clinic. Most recently she established a severe eczema service in Fife.

A past secretary of the Scottish Dermatology Society she is also a member of the British Association of Dermatologists and the American Academy of Dermatology. She has acted as an advisor for the Scottish Medicines consortium (SMC), the National Institute for Care and Health Excellence (NICE) and has lectured extensively on inflammatory skin disease and biological therapies.

Recently, she has combined her clinical work with the role of scientific fellow for a Danish Dermatology company – Leo pharma – in their bio dermatology division.
