Dermatology Clinic

The Old Fire Station is a Community Dermatology Centre and serves patients within the East Riding of Yorkshire that have been referred in by their GP. The Dermatology Clinic was recently classified as an area of ‘Outstanding Practice’ by the Care Quality Commission report (2016). It has various elements to it and is primarily run by Dr Carruthers who has a specialist interest in Dermatology.

Phototherapy

Phototherapy is the use of light to treat medical conditions, usually skin related such as psoriasis, eczema, and other forms of dermatitis. Natural sunlight has been known to be beneficial in certain skin disorders for thousands of years, and it is the ultraviolet part of the radiation produced by the sun that is used in Phototherapy. The clinics are run by the Dermatology nurse, and to be referred into them you would need a referral letter from your GP.

Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is the use of freezing cold liquid nitrogen as a treatment for certain medical conditions. At the Old Fire Station, Sister Jayne runs a Cryotherapy clinic for the freezing of warts and verruca’s on hands, feet and other non-sensitive areas.

To be referred into the Cryotherapy clinic you must first see a doctor to see if your ailment is suitable for Cryotherapy. Should the area requiring Cryotherapy be in a sensitive/intimate place the treatment may be undertaken by Dr Carruthers in his designated Cryotherapy clinics (separate from the nurse-led clinic).

Professor Walton/ Dr S.C. Carruthers

Every second Tuesday of the month our surgery holds a Dermatology clinic where visiting Consultant Dermatologist Professor Walton and Dr Carruthers see patients with dermatological complaints. You must be referred into the clinic by your own GP and appointments are non-urgent and expected within 3 months.
