All doctors in the surgery manage skin conditions. Dr. Tony Foley has a particular interest in Dermatology. Most skin conditions can be easily managed in the surgery including but not limited to acne, eczema, psoriasis, ulcers and warts or verrucae.
The practice nurse can assess and treat chronic or acute wounds as well as skin ulceration. Dressings that require a number of nurse’s appointments a week should be made in advance as the nurse can book up quickly.
