Preparing for your appointment

If your doctor has asked you to attend our department for clinical photography, they will also have asked you to sign a consent form prior to arriving. Your doctor may also want to use your images for teaching or publication purposes. You will be informed of this at the time of your consultation and, if you agree, you will be asked to sign another consent form allowing this.
