As a team we perform a number of minor surgical procedures, examples of which are below. You may find it useful to make your first consultation with a doctor who performs a particular procedure ─ this can be discussed with the receptionist when booking.
We believe that performing these procedures in general practice gives our patients faster access to a more convenient service. However, there are limitations to procedures we are able/allowed to perform.
Removal of moles by excision
Removal of other skin lesions by cautery or shave excision
Ingrowing toenail operations
Implanon insertion (long term contraception)
Insertion of contraceptive coils
Minor procedures for purely cosmetic reasons are not funded by the NHS and therefore we do not offer them.
