Dr Tim Clayton has been an NHS consultant dermatologist since 2006 and works at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust and at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. He has vast experience in all aspects of medical and surgical dermatology.

Tim works hard in his NHS role a job that he loves and he is dedicated to providing excellent care to both NHS and Private patients.

As a result of the pandemic Tim has been extremely busy seeing extra patients in his NHS clinics to cope with the demand.

It is unfortunate that some dermatology colleagues have left the NHS altogether and this has led to NHS waiting times with a knock-on effect to all of Dr Clayton's clinics.

Dr Clayton's NHS and private clinics are therefore very busy. We ask that you remain patient at this time and Tim will do all that he can to ensure you are seen in a timely fashion. He does keep some URGENT spaces available so if you cannot find an appointment in the next 4-6 weeks please contact Mandy.

Dr Tim fully understands that many of you will have concerns about Covid-19 and Tim recommends that using the option of a video consultation as an alternative to coming into clinic.

Please strongly consider a virtual clinic appointment if you are feeling unwell, testing positive or unable to travel. These appointments do work extremely well and we can get prescriptions posted directly to you immediately via our online pharmacy platform.
