Warts are small lumps that develop on the skin, usually on hands and feet.
Warts can affect anyone, are all contagious and can be picked up from skin-to-skin contact, or at places like public swimming pools where the moisture helps the transfer of bacteria. As warts are contagious, it is best to treat them as soon as possible to avoid them from spreading to other areas or other people.
Warts are the result of an infection from the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), and although they are generally harmless many people choose to have them removed. They can be itchy or uncomfortable, verrucae can feel like needles, and warts can have an impact on self-esteem if they are visible.
In addition to warts, seborrheic warts can also develop. These are age related growths on the skin that are not true warts but look like warts and can be unsightly and numerous.
Most NHS services now see the removal of warts as a “procedure of limited clinical value” and are unlikely to refer patients for wart removal.
Summerfield Healthcare offers private wart removal for warts and seborrheic warts with appointments that suit you and at affordable prices. We do not require a referral from an NHS GP and will diagnose, treat, and offer any necessary aftercare for your procedure.
Summerfield Healthcare offer the shave and cauterisation method of wart removal. Our GP will first numb the area with local anaesthetic.
The GP will then shave the wart and cauterise the base, sealing and protecting your skin.
Our clinicians can remove multiple lesions in one appointment so you won’t need to book on multiple occasions. If we do however find that you need longer than the booked appointment time, we will also assist you in booking a further appointment at a time convenient to you.
During your initial consultation, your consultant will look at any affected area and speak to you about the possible treatment options. The cost of multiple removals will be confirmed to you before your procedure starts and there are no hidden costs.
Although we are a private healthcare provider, our priority is you and your health. That’s why we are committed to giving you excellent healthcare at affordable prices. Our booking team and clinicians are dedicated to ensuring you don’t incur any unnecessary costs when arranging your procedure.
We offer an enquiry triage process allowing you to use the enquiry form below to upload a photograph of your wart(s). We will then advise you on which of our clinicians you need to see, based on the complexity of your case.
We can also offer a free 5 minute appointment in person to give you a straightforward ‘yes’ or ‘no’ of whether we can assist you, for those who are not able to upload a photograph of their wart(s).
Please note, if we confirm we can assist you with removal of your wart(s) we are not always able to guarantee a subsequent consultation and removal on the same day.
Once we have confirmed we can assist you with your wart(s) removal, our consultation fee starts from £89.00 depending on the consultant who is most suitable for your case, this is based on factors such as the area of the body your wart(s) is located.
The consultation is mandatory to ensure the specialist can conduct a thorough physical examination of the wart(s), discuss the appropriate removal methods and obtain the relevant paperwork from yourself.
We will also advise you of the cost of removal during your appointment. There are no hidden costs and you are not obliged to proceed with the surgery after the consultation. You can discuss all your options with the clinician and take your time in making a decision. Wart removal procedures start from £99.00 depending on the size and location.
We have clinics that offer wart removal in Wolverhampton and wart removal in Shrewsbury. Both clinics have excellent facilities and expert staff to take care of you, so you can book the most convenient time and place to suit your needs.

General Practitioner / Medical Director
Dr Vivake Roddah is a GP with professional interests in Dermatology, Minor surgery and Occupational Medicine. He completed his GP training in the Oxford Deanery and has had the opportunity of working with patients from many different backgrounds.
Due to the recently announced lockdown in England, Summerfield Healthcare is currently only able to offer a limited number of clinical services including:
For some services we continue to offer such as health checks and minor surgery we are now providing COVID-19 testing for all patients and Doctors. This is mandatory due to the proximity of the practitioner, the duration of the appointment and multiple clinicians also being involved in your treatment. An additional £10 will be included in the appointment fee at the point of payment to cover the cost of COVID testing, and your booking confirmation will reflect this requirement. This is not required for blood testing due to the short duration of appointments and reduced risk of exposure.
If you cannot find the service you are looking for or it is not available to book due to the lockdown, please enter your details below and the service you require and we will contact you when the service resumes. Please remember that all COVID testing services are continuing during lockdown.
