Procedure Waiting Times


Tollgate Clinic, Colchester

Waiting Times (October 2022)


We offer treatment for a number of different conditions.

Examination of Skin Conditions

At Tollgate Clinic, our clinicians are specially trained in the use of a Digital Dermatoscope, to examine skin lesions for diagnostic purposes.  With a digital dermatoscope we have an advantage over those performing dermatology with the naked eye.

 Treatment of Benign Skin Conditions

  • Skin Tags
  • Benign Moles
  • Sebaceous Cysts
  • Lipomas (fatty lumps)
  • Spider Naevi

If your problem is not listed above,  you are still welcome to make an appointment and if we are not able to help you we are always happy to advise on other treatment necessary and where to find it.

 Lesions located on the face

There are many sensitive structures in the face. In order to ensure treatment is possible without unnecessary scarring or complications we recommend a separate consultation  for patients with facial lesions, charged at £60.

Biopsy and Histology

For all all patients who have a pigmented lesion (mole)  our Clinicians will take a biopsy for analysis at the laboratory. Results are then returned to the clinic and we will contact you to discuss the findings. The charge for this is £80 per sample (one per mole).   Any other suspicious lesions will also be biopsied  at Clinician’s discretion


Sutures are not needed for most minor surgery procedures but if they are Tollgate Clinic usually uses soluble stitches which means there is no need for a return visit to the clinic to have stitches removed.
