VERRUCAS

Most people develop one or more warts at some time in their life, usually before the age of 20. About 1 in 10 people in the UK has warts at any one time. They are not usually harmful.  There is no need to treat warts if they are not causing you any problems. Without treatment, about 3 in 10 warts have gone within 10 weeks, and most warts will have gone within 1-2 years, and leave no scar.   Clinicians at Bottisham Medical Practice do not usually treat verrucas but are happy to provide advice if required.  Alternatively, please see: http://www.patient.co.uk/health/warts-and-verrucas for further information.

Patient Choice

Patient Choice

Choosing a Hospital

If you need to go to hospital to see a specialist, you have the right to choose from any NHS hospital offering a suitable treatment that meets NHS standards and costs.  Exceptions are emergency, cancer, maternity and mental health services.

When you and your GP agree that you need an appointment with a specialist, there is a system called Choose and Book which shows your GP which hospitals or clinics are available for your treatment.  Your GP will discuss with you the clinically appropriate options available for treating your medical condition.

The practice Medical Secretary will usually book the first available appointment for you and forward this information to you.  If you later find this appointment is not convenient, you can contact the hospital yourself to alter the appointment time.
