NHS Choose and Book
The NHS offers patients the choice to have certain benign skin conditions treated within the private sector. This is because most NHS hospitals do not have the capacity to treat this additional group of patients and your GP practice does not have the facilities or technical skills available, to offer the required treatment within the practice. Only patients with benign (non-cancerous) skin lesions are permitted to be referred via this route eg. sebaceous cysts, lipomas, benign moles which are catching or are painful etc. Mr Peach can see patients with these conditions and arrange surgery if appropriate. The wait for surgery is between 8-12 weeks, initial dressing changes are usually at your local practice and Mr Peach will see you two weeks after your surgery to discuss any pathology and ensure that you are pleased with the outcome of any surgery. All suspected skin cancers need to be referred to their local skin cancer team.
