Reason for referral
NOTE : This is a GPwSI intermediate level service. Complex or worrying cases, especially those where malignant /
premalignant pathology is suspected, or where a lesion is large or in a difficult anatomical site should be referred to
Dermatology or Plastic Surgery. Problems beyond the skill level available in the clinic will be returned to the referrer
a.s.a.p. via fax / phone / letter with suggestions for alternative management. Although the vast majority of cases will
receive a “one stop” service with surgery on the day, patients should not expect that this is the only possible outcome.
Please specify problem being referred (tick the relevant box):
Benign diseases of skin tissue or structures - large skin tag/polyp, cutaneous horn, naevus, hemangioma,
pyogenic granuloma, seborrhoeic keratosis, dermatofibroma, lipoma, chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis.
Cyst - of skin, scalp or eyelid (excision), ganglion or digital mucous cyst (aspiration), small oral mucocoele (curette)
Diagnostic - excision or punch biopsy (not suspected malignancy)
Foreign body - removal from skin (not subcutaneous)
Nail disorder - requiring nail resection / avulsion / ablation (consider Podiatry first - few cases need resection!)

Dermatology, or from a Consultant Plastic Surgeon
