South Sefton, Southport and Formby

We provide consultant-led dermatology outpatient clinics for NHS patients who have been referred by their GP in South Sefton CCG and Southport and Formby CCG. We review all referrals to ensure patients can be effectively managed in our community clinic.

Our waiting times are typically 4 to 6 weeks and we provide extended opening times including clinics at the weekend.

We understand skin conditions have a major effect on people’s lives which is why we aim to provide treatment as quickly as possible, often providing surgical treatment for patients the on the same day.

If you have any questions, please call us on 01515 416770
