Teledermatology

The Practice is part of a new and exciting trial involving referrals to dermatology. When patients present in surgery with a skin problem, they are then asked to attend the treatment room where a photograph of their skin complaint is taken. This is then sent electronically to a Dermatology consultant who triages it and normally replies within 72 hours giving a diagnosis and advice on the best way to treat.

Treatment Room

Our Practice Nurses provide a range of services for minor injuries, immunisations, blood tests, health checks, blood pressure testing, cervical smears, ear syringing, emergency contraception and travel clinics. They run a range of Chronic Disease Clinics and offer professional advice.
