Kings Lane Medical Practice currently uses teledermatology to assess patients with skin conditions/lesions.
Tele-Dermatology is the ability to photograph skin lesions and send the images securely to a Consultant Dermatologist to diagnose whether further treatment is necessary or not. This, in most cases, saves patients a journey to hospital to see a Consultant Dermatologist. The results are then returned to the clinician’s NHS email account. The results are returned within 48 hours.
Patient feedback is extremely positive. They appreciate the quick results and are impressed that the practice is using new technologies.
