Description - Orpington Hospital Clinics & Medical Centres Orpington

Urgent Care Centres provide treatment for patients suffering from urgent but not life threatening conditions such as cuts and bruises, mild chest infections, coughs and colds, fever, sickness, vomiting and simple fractures. Anticoagulants are drugs which prevent the blood from forming clots so easily-some people describe this as "thinning" the blood. Dermatology is a specialty that investigates and treats all problems of the skin, hair and nails. Dermatologists also diagnose and remove skin cancers of which there are three main types: basal cell carcinoma (rodent ulcer) which is very common, slow growing and not at all serious; squamous cell carcinoma which is less common and in some cases can be more serious; malignant melanoma which should be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible to prevent future problems. The Dermatology service is provided within a multidisciplinary setting offering a full range of investigation and treatment for patients with skin disorders of all ages.
