I RECENTLY visited the Mortimer Medical Practice in Leominster and requested Dr Bartlett to look at some angry spots that has appeared on my back.

He immediately took photographs and sent them to the dermatology department at Hereford.

What are your thoughts?

This was followed by an appointment for an examination and later treatment at Hereford’s Gaol Street clinic, where surgery for possible melanoma plus a punch biopsy took place.

All of this happened within 20 days from start to finish. What a wonderful NHS we have. I wish to thank everyone concerned for their care.
