What to Expect at Your Appointment

Your Dermatology/Plastic Surgery outpatient appointment

Your initial consultation should be friendly and informative. Our reception team will book you in on arrival and ask you whether the contact details we have for you are still correct. You will be asked to take a seat in the waiting area. Any delay in appointment times will be explained to you by the nurse supporting your consultant. If your appointment is delayed, please speak to our reception team.

If you are attending for a surgical procedure (such as a biopsy), an appointment as a day case usually takes 30-60 minutes. We recommend you bring a friend or relative with you to the appointment to drive you home afterwards. You will be given follow-up advice before you leave the department after surgery.
