Information for GPs

Clare House Surgical & Dermatology Service is now established as an independent healthcare provider in the south west and is contracted by North, East & West Devon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) for the provision of local anaesthetic surgery to NHS patients on an ‘any willing provider’ basis. We are happy to undertake the following within our own dedicated local anaesthetic day case surgery theatre:

  • non-scalpel vasectomy
  • carpal tunnel decompression
  • excision and reconstruction of suspected skin cancers (BCCs)
  • other local anaesthetic procedures including ‘lumps and bumps’ excision within CCG approval processes

Clare House Surgical will appear on the local choice network for Choose & Book vasectomy, hand surgery and dermatology appointments. Once a referral is received we aim to see and treat patients within two weeks where possible.

We will also endeavour to reduce costs to the CCG by avoiding unnecessary follow-up appointments while guaranteeing effective communication with GPs at all times, including a written discharge summary and copies of all histology reports.

All patients are requested to complete a feedback form after their treatment to ensure that we consistently provide them with a high quality of care throughout their treatment episode.
