Getting acne scar treatment with the NHS (UK)?

Recommended Posts

I found an old post on this website about people getting help through the NHS and they were saying it's really difficult to do and the waiting times for a appointment are horrendous. But the post was old (2008) and so I want to know if anyone has any experience with it that was recent, I mainly want to know if you got help and generally how bad was your acne.

I myself am a 17 male, had acne since 14, got help via GP when 15 (I got acnecide gel & oxytetracycline, It was stage 4 acne so it's severe.) which reduced the spots but I'm now left with horrendous scars on my back mainly and some of my face. I recently went back to my GP about my scars and they put me in a referral for a dermatologist at an NHS hospital, so I'm curious as to what other peoples experiences are?

Any replies welcome, thanks for reading! :)
