As part of Virgin Care’s response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, we are putting measures in place to protect patients, visitors and staff
We are making some changes to out-patient appointments, this leaflet is to outline what safety measures we have put in place and what we expect of you. We are restricting face-to-face consultations where we can safely do so and instead promoting virtual consultations. We recommend that all patients wear face coverings when attending the service.
Please note that you will be asked a series of screening questions around COVID-19 when you arrive at the service by the reception.
We provide consultation, advice and treatment from consultants, specialist GPs and specialist nurses for a wide range of dermatological problems (skin complaints). Our community dermatology service is consultant-led and accepts referrals for patients of all ages. All referrals are triaged with some conditions seen initially by our nurse specialist, who is supported by the consultant.
