There are many conditions which the NHS no longer funds that require minor surgical procedures for example benign conditions such as skin tags, benign moles, sebaceous cysts, warts etc.
At MySkyn Clinic we have a fully accredited surgically trained GP and are able to offer the same high quality, low cost minor operations service to patients on a private basis. Patients may either self-refer or be referred via their own GP.
Not normally. Although minor surgery operations done under local anaesthetic are by definition “minor” it is still surgery. We feel it is important that you have time to consider whether you wish to proceed, and if so, can then book the operation at another time to suit yourself.
However, we consider that patients referred by their GP will already have had opportunity to discuss the pros and cons of surgery, so when we arrange an initial appointment with you we may suggest your having the surgery done on the same day, if that suits you better.
