We provide consultant-led dermatology outpatient clinics for NHS patients in Lincolnshire East. We review all referrals to ensure patients can be effectively managed in our community clinics in Boston, Louth and Skegness. 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.
