As an alternative to a face-to-face appointment, you may have been previously been offered a virtual assessment using our MySkinDoctor app. If you previously declined, then you are welcome to use the app with the code that was initially texted to you. Please visit myskindoctor.co.uk for further details on how to download and use our app. If you require a face-to-face appointment, we will be in contact by telephone or letter to arrange this for you.
Face coverings: The highest priority for the NHS remains the safety of staff, patients and visitors. While COVID restrictions will end in many settings in England from 19th July 2021, everyone accessing or visiting healthcare settings for their dermatology appointment must continue to provide and wear their own face covering (unless they are exempt) and follow social distancing rules. Failure to wear a face covering may result in a patient being turned away from clinic and being asked to reschedule their appointment.
