Skin Clinic Restart

Regular in-practice clinic resumes

Skin Clinic to Resume

Posted: 10 May 2021 · Practice news

With the easing of restrictions, we are planning to restart our regular in-practice Skin Clinic. This means that when patients contact their GP or Nurse regarding a skin tag or skin lesion such as seborrhoeic keratosis, one option may be to be referred into our in-practice clinic for treatment with Liquid Nitrogen where appropriate.

Patients should note that when contacting the practice regarding a skin lesion they may be asked to submit an e-Consultation form along with photographs so that a full history and clear pictures are available, rather than being asked to attend the practice for a clinician to view the skin lesion. The easiest way to do this is to select the "rash, spots & skin problems" protocol in eConsult on our website.

Our first Skin Clinic will be on Tuesday 8 June 2021 and will be run by Healthcare Assistant Lynn Ferrar, initially alternate weeks, building up to weekly.

Academy Medical Centre

We are one of the largest GP practices in Tayside, Scotland, with approximately 10,000 patients on our list.

The surgery is open Monday to Friday from 8am - 6pm (except public holidays).
