Sun & Skin
Dr Atkinson did a recent talk at the Northlands Wood Patient Group (PPG) on Sun & Skin.
Here are his tips and guidance on the sun and your skin:
• Sun exposure puts us at risk for skin problems - benign and malignant, some benign skin changes are pre-cancerous.
• All 3 types of skin cancer have sun exposure as a risk factor for developing them.
• We can diagnose and treat all pre-cancerous skin conditions at Northlands Wood.
• We can diagnose all skin cancers and can treat Basal Cell Carcinomas (the commonest) here.
• Things you can do to prevent sun related skin damage and skin cancer - avoid sun exposure or cover yourself up with hat, sleeves, long trousers and sun screen. Do not use sun beds.

Following a recent government change in the GP contract, we are now required to provide a named doctor for all of our patients over the age of 75 years.
As we work for a team, you may still ask for one of the other doctors in the practice, but your named doctor will take on the overall responsibility for your care.
We are in the process of contacting everyone over the age of 75 to inform them of their named GP, but if you have not been contacted or are unsure of your named GP please ask at reception.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
