Hello, my name is Dr Billy Willcock.
I work in the Dermatology Department at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital as an Associate Specialist. I also run the Dermatology services at Rolle, specialising in the treatment of skin cancer and pre-cancerous skin lesions.
Twice weekly I run skin cancer clinics at Treetops, our branch surgery, assessing patients with skin cancer and performing advanced skin cancer surgery.
For patients registered with Rolle Medical Partnership we offer an exceptional TeleMed Dermatology service. You can email in a photo of lesion or rash you are concerned about and I will get back to you, usually within a week, and arrange, if needed, a face to face appointment, treatment, a referral or surgery if that is needed.
Please read our teledermatology policy
and then use the link below to send in your photographs and tell us a little bit about your skin.
WHEN EMAILING IN YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS TO THIS SECURE EMAIL ADDRESS, PLEASE INDICATE THAT YOU CONSENT TO THEM BEING STORED TO YOUR CONFIDENTIAL NOTES. THEY WILL NOT BE USED FOR ANY OTHER PURPOSE.
If you don't do this, then our reception team will email you back to confirm your consent before passing on your photographs to a doctor.
Please do not email photographs of children's skin problems without first discussing this with your GP.
