"Very little time with dermatology consultant"

About: Sentinel Healthcare Southwest Community Interest Company / Dermatology (skin)

(as the patient),

Only one drawback was that I was in with the consultant for less than two mins, and in that time to view the skin problem of which I think was sun damage (early stages of what could be skin cancer) and during my two mins I think the problem was treated, I then left (very short time less than 2 mins).

My minor view of my time with the consultant was that a little time explaining the problem and a little advice on what to do to avoid the problem occuring again. I would have been more unhappy had I been a private patient and not NHS.

Other than my minor point, am very happy with the result (Oh and I thought the person I met at reception was rather blunt too).
