Cryotherapy

Due to this service currently not being funded, we are unable to continue providing cryotherapy at Tavyside Health Centre (this includes both Tavyside and Lifton sites).

This was not a decision taken lightly by the Partners and we understand that it will be a significant disappointment to a number of our patients. There are alternative therapies available for many of the skin lesions that were treated by cryotherapy either via a prescription or by referral to dermatology and if you are concerned or would like to discuss matters further please make an appointment with a GP. For some of the benign lesions such as warts, you will be directed to self-management with over the counter remedies and you may wish to discuss these further directly with your local pharmacist.

Kind regards
