If you have any concerns about your care or feel that your rights have not been respected, please let us know. Timely feedback helps us. Your rights as a patient are:
At the initial consultation the doctor will take your history, examine you and suggest an appropriate treatment. If this involves surgical removal of a lesion the procedure will be explained to you at this consultation as well as any potential risks associated with the procedure. The procedure will NOT usually be undertaken at this time and another appointment will be booked for you.
