Section for Existing Patients Already Signed up to Patient Facing Services
Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic we are now doing much more of our work through telephone consultations. Sometimes it is useful for the nurse or doctor to see a picture, or you may feel it will help them understand your problem. This is particularly the case with skin lesions or rashes. To help us and you we will no longer be accepting photos through our email address. All photos will have to be sent through an e-consult or through a text message reply. Any photos sent via email will be returned unopened and you will be directed to send them through an e-consult.
Sometimes you may have a skin problem in an intimate area such as on breasts, genitalia (vagina & penis), or the anus (back passage). In this case please arrange a telephone consultation first. The nurse or doctor will then decide if they need a visual image and arrange this either through a face to face appointment, photos via econsult or via a video consultation. Please DO NOT send intimate photos without talking to a nurse or doctor first.
If your child has a rash in an intimate area we will usually arrange for a face to face consultation if we need to see the rash. DO NOT take photos of your child’s genitalia or anus and send them to us, this will leave you open to prosecution for making indecent images of a child.
How to take a high quality clinical image
- Ideally ask someone else to take the photo.
- Use a plain background.
- Ensure good overhead lighting.
- Take a wider image to establish location and then a close up of the lesion or rash. Different angles can help demonstrate size/shape of a lesion.
- Ensure the images are in focus.
