Wakefield

We provide consultant-led dermatology outpatient clinics for NHS patients who have been referred to us by their GP in Wakefield 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.

We understand skin conditions can 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 01924 846278
