"Reassuring care from skin clinic"

About: Torbay Hospital / Dermatology

(as the patient),

Mysterious mark on my skin of my face, I have had operations to remove sun damage spots but this looked very different.

I reported in to my GP who sent me to the hospital. I went to the hospital and arrived 5 minutes early. I went straight in to see the dermatologist who was able to set my mind to rest immediately - he also gave me a general check up. He was very courteous and understanding. I can't tell you how much we appreciate the NHS especially in Torbay 10/10

It appears he came from London for the day.

Dear jazzman,

Many thanks for your honest and encouraging comments and for taking the time to post them on Patient Opinion. You might be interested to know that we are currently asking people a few specific questions about how they have found dermatology services. We will make a note of your comments here, but if you would like to add anything via the survey it will help us to understand what our patients want from these services, what works and what doesn’t, and how we can make these services better.

We are particularly interested in how patients manage their conditions in partnership with their GP or other health professionals, including physiotherapists and hospital specialists.

You can take the survey here: http://southdevonandtorbayccg.nhs.uk/index.php/2012-05-05-21-22-02/latest-news/283-havve-you-had-treatment-for-your-bones-joints-or-skin
