The NHS no longer delivers "non-essential" mole treatments, meaning that the majority of mole removal procedures, or the removal of skin 'lumps and bumps' (e.g. warts, verrucae and skin tags), can no longer be administered for free on the NHS.
A mole that is believed to be life-threatening or cancerous can be removed on the NHS, however.
We recommend that all patients establish the exact length of the expected waiting list with your local NHS Trust. These are unfortunately currently subject to significant delays (e.g. several months or longer), due to the disruption caused by the COVID crisis.
When it comes to making a decision about which provider or surgeon to select as your chosen preference for your Otoplasty procedure, safety and quality of care are typically the most important considerations to think about, alongside any Clinic and surgeon’s level of experience with Otoplasty procedures.
