The Plastic Surgery and Dermatology teams work very closely together and aim to offer a seamless service for patients with skin cancer at Ipswich Hospital. The two specialist services have  allocated clinics which run alongside one another to allow for ease of referral for Plastic surgery opinion and equally for dermatology opinion. This approach aims to support the patient experience and promote timely treatment provision.

People receiving surgery under our plastic surgeons care may expect treatment within the dermatology and plastic surgery department as a day case, or may require the environment benefits of the Raedwald Day Surgery Unit in the Garrett Anderson Centre. If you are awaiting an appointment within the Garrett Anderson Centre, a pre-operative assessment appointment will be required before your surgery date.

Results of surgery will be discussed in a consultation environment allowing time to cover any questions and also explain any further treatment if necessary.

If you are referred to our Plastic Surgery colleagues then there may be occasions when you need to receive further care at the specialist centre at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Trust. We would like to refer you to the very informative website www.skincancersurgery.co.uk which hosts a wide range of skin cancer surgery information for those people awaiting surgical procedures at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Trust.

Those people undergoing regular review  under the care of the plastic surgery team will be seen within our dermatology and plastic surgery department.
