"skin tag on my eye lid"

About: Holme Valley Memorial Hospital / Day surgery

(as the patient),

I went to my GP several years ago and was refused a referral to a plastic surgeon, I think on the grounds of funding. Tried again last month with a different doctor and was referred straight away. Chose my own appointment with a Choose and Book facility.

Attended my appointment. Was taken in 5 minutes early. Procedure explained fully by the plastic surgeon performing the procedure.. Not a problem to do. Very simple. I was taken into a Minor Operating Theatre, the eye lid was numbed, and the skin tag cauterised off. Only took about 2 minutes. I came out at the time I should have gone in. All attendant staff very helpful, and professional.
