The Station on Tanti Family and Women’s Clinic has a well equipped procedure room to provide minor surgical procedures.
All of our GPs can perform skin checks and also provide minor surgical procedures. We provide other services such as management of ingrown toenails and joint injections. We will have Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP joint injections available at our clinic soon.
For a comprehensive skin check we advise a dedicated appointment for a full assessment as this requires time. All skin lesions require a prior appointment to assess the most appropriate management. Your GP with then make arrangements for a procedure if needed. Please ask at reception for further information.
