Information about minor surgery from Dr Benjamin Loxton-Edwards:

We see many patients who have small skin lesions that they would like assessed and removed.
Patients may worry about these lesions or find them irritating.

Both Dr Hunt and myself perform minor skin surgery here at the Oxford Private Medical Practice.

We routinely remove benign moles, skin tags, cysts, lipomas and other skin lesions.

An initial consultation followed by an appointment lasting at least thirty minutes is required for any of these procedures. This includes a consultation, documentation of consent and the procedure itself. We use local anaesthetic to ensure the procedure is pain free.

A short follow up appointment may be required for suture removal.

If you have a skin lesion that you would like removed please book directly to see myself or Dr Hunt.

Please visit our fees page for our full list of minor surgery charges. 

Blood tests

Our doctors have access to and can order a wide range of pathology tests which can be ordered during your consultation or health check. For general health checks we usually suggest a screening profile. Information about these profiles and their costs can be found here.  

The doctor will discuss with you what tests they are ordering, and the price of the tests, at your consultation.  Please note that these costs are for the pathology only and are in addition to the consultation fee.

If you wish to claim the cost of the tests from your insurance please check that you are able to do this before your consultation.  We are only able to bill the costs of blood tests to an insurance company if we have a guarantee of payment from your insurer before your appointment. 


We have access to many private providers of imaging across Oxford, Cheltenham and London.  We are usually able to arrange any imaging that is needed within a few days.  Results may be given to you in person or can be emailed. If you wish to claim the cost of imaging from your insurance please check that you are able to do this before your consultation as some insurers will only cover imaging that has been requested by a specialist.
