Friday clinics usually last all day (9am – 5pm) depending on which health professionals you need to see. We will discuss this with you before you attend. Appointments are held in the morning and are in 45 minute slots. The afternoon is set aside for any further investigations you or your child may need, such as skin biopsies, minor skin surgery, blood tests and photographing your skin.
Lunch is provided between 12.30 and 1.30pm.
Throughout the day, you are encouraged to ask any questions you might have about xeroderma pigmentosum. You can also meet members of the XP Support Group in the clinic.
Tuesday appointments usually last from 2-3pm, and are normally set aside for new patients needing a diagnostic skin biopsy, or patients who need their skin to be checked.
