GP Care is an award winning social enterprise providing specialist medical services in the South-West of England. We have been in existence for nearly 20 years. We treat over 20,000 patients a year, and receive world class patient feedback.
We have provided a a well-established self funded minor skin surgery service since 2007, for the removal of various inconvenient or unsightly skin lesions for over 16s. The surgery is performed by a team of highly experienced GPs and Advanced Nurse Practitioners who have additional specialist training and experience in dermatology/surgery.
The majority of lesions we remove are harmless and generally no longer removed on the NHS. We would encourage all patients to check with their GP prior to paying for a service as certain lesions, including those that may be cancerous, are still covered by the NHS.
At Litfield House surgery is performed by Dr Stainer who has been working with GP Care since 2006 and is the Clinical Lead for the Minor Surgery Service. Dr Stainer is a member of The Association of Surgeons in Primary Care. He is trained in Dermoscopy for skin lesion diagnosis and has over 25 years experience of performing local anaesthetic skin surgery.
