Dermatology Mole Check

Service Description

Our Service exists to meet the increasing demand for skin lesion assessments. Most GPs are not confident in dermoscopy and fear missing a skin cancer. As a consequence, most local dermatology departments are overwhelmed with Two-Week Wait (2WW) referrals. The knock-on effect is all routine dermatology referrals are delayed and delayed. GPs are having to manage patients on a routine waiting list for months before accessing secondary care, often having to write expedite letters and offer additional appointments. Reducing the number of patients seen on a Two-Week Wait pathway is the long term way to increase access for other referrals. ‍ Our Mole Check Dermatology service quickly triage's lesions into those that require routine or urgent outpatient appointments or can be safely discharged and have the mole removed in our clinic. We can reduce onward referral via the Two-Week Wait pathway, freeing up appointments in secondary care for other patients. ​ If your mole is suspicious, you can use your report to join the 2 week urgent pathway. If your mole is benign, you can have it removed in our clinic. £65 for assessment of up to 3 lesions
