Referrals are triaged by the Consultant to prioritise skin conditions and enable treatment in a timely manner.

To optimise appointments, we can only see you for the condition you've been referred for. If anything incidental has developed since referral, you need to discuss this with the GP in the first instance.
When you call us, you may be connected to an answering machine. Leave a message, including your name and contact number, and we will return your call as soon as we can.
