NHS Dermatology & Skin Plastic Surgery
Cotswold Surgical Partners offer a community based skin surgery and dermatology service, commissioned by both NHS Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire Integrated Care Board and NHS Gloucestershire Integrated Care Board. We also support NHS skin surgery patients referred from the Great Western Hospital in Swindon, North Bristol NHS Trust, Gloucester Royal Hospital and the Royal United Hospital in Bath.
During 2023 we are also supporting NHS Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire ICB with an NHS See & Treat service. This includes the provision of minor surgery treatment for skin conditions comprising of low risk basal cell carcinomas; and benign skin lesions for which funding approval is already in place.
Private Dermatology & Skin Plastic Surgery
With two fully equipped operating theatres we provide a range of day surgeries under local anaesthetic. Working in partnership with several Plastic Surgeons, each with their own specialty, we can ensure that you receive honest, realistic advice and support on a range of surgical procedures such as skin cancer excisions, hand surgeries such as Carpal Tunnel and other minor surgeries that do not require general anaesthetic.
In 2022 we became accredited with the main insurance providers Axa, Bupa, Check4Cancer, Cigna and Vitality improving access to procedures locally. We are in the process of updating our website with further information.

Cotswold Surgical Partners (CSP) was founded back in 2011 by our three directors, two being Consultant Plastic Surgeons, Umraz Khan and Nick Reynolds and by a Consultant Dermatologist Dr Thomas Millard. All three continue to be active in not only overseeing the service and direction of the practices but seeing and treating patients in our clinics. We are delighted to be a Care Quality Commission regulated service.
CSP was originally based at Tetbury Hospital in Gloucestershire (hence the name) and delivered surgical skin cancer and dermatological services for Gloucestershire CCG (clinical commissioning group). Working in partnership with Tetbury Hospital Trust, we carried out skin cancer services for the region until 2019. In 2017/2018 we developed a new service in partnership with Wiltshire CCG based in Spa Medical centre in Melksham.
In 2019-20 it became clear to us that the demand and need for services was growing beyond what is available locally. Our aim has always been to provide ‘Quality Care, Locally Delivered’ and so in 2020 Royal Wootton Bassett was chosen for our first Cotswold Surgical Partners’ purpose designed and built practice with Shawn Warren-Willcox as the General Manager. The practice was formally opened on 31st July 2021 once we had obtained CQC approval and welcomed our first patients in December.
Housing two fully functioning day case operating theatres and five clinic rooms suitable for outpatient and minor operative procedures, we can continue to offer a skin cancer diagnostic and treatment service, whilst also expanding our range of services and treatments to meet the growing needs of our patients locally. Currently these include not only dermatological services and dermatology outpatient procedures but aesthetic skin care too.
