Dermatology

A significant proportion of the population go to their GPs about a range of skin conditions and ask to see a specialist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

These conditions range from eczema in children and acne in teenagers to increasing rates of skin cancer in adults. And that means dermatology has a comparatively high number of referrals to specialist care, particularly for diagnosis. With an aging population, the demand is likely to increase – putting pressure on your dermatology department.

How insourcing can help your dermatology team

Although mortality rates from skin conditions are fairly low, skin cancer rates are rising, which means half of specialist dermatology treatments relate to the diagnosis and management of skin lesions. Naturally, this is something patients want to address sooner rather than later.

By working in your department during the weekend, our experienced clinical team of dermatologists can see new outpatients, follow up patients that have been seen previously by your team and perform minor surgical procedures.

By insourcing to 18 Week Support, we can help you meet the rising demand for your dermatology services, help you maintain the 18 Week RTT standard, and ensure your waiting list backlog is cleared. Most importantly, we can help ensure your patients receive a faster, more efficient and seamless service.
