where to go in UK for a cortisone shot?!

Recommended Posts

hey. does anyone in theUK know where to go to get a cortisone shot for a cyst? its not like we can just call up a derm and make an appt. im presuming it works the same in other parts of england, here in london u need a referral form yr gp and then have 2 wait a few months 2 c a derm. how do u get a shot?

I'm in the uk and not really sure, I think there's probably 2 options, either goto your doc and say its an emergency (I believe derms can make urgent appointments quick, but otherwise a couple of months wait), or possibly go private.

Private clinics will be your only option. My derm is private and has got his own clinic, i dont know for sure but i woulda though that you could call for emergency appointment for the injections. Obviously its gonna be a very expensive way of getting rid of them, and you might need to be one of his patients already, i dont know if you could just get an appointment so quick unless you're known to him/her.
