Long-Standing Services at FACEmed

The management of benign and malignant skin cancer lesions at FACEmed is aided by the service level agreements in place with specialist laboratories in Essex such as Chelmsford Histopathology (based at Broomfield NHS) and Pathology First in Basildon. Specialist courier services collect samples and take them to the specialist laboratories for pathological diagnosis which is then relayed to the patient at FACEmed by their Consultant Surgeon.
In addition to NHS and privately funded healthcare, the Centre is registered as a provider of surgery for hand, foot, ankle and skin surgery with major private health insurers such as BUPA and AXA PPP.
The dental department at FACEmed currently offers a full spectrum of dental services including maxillofacial oral surgical procedures. Oral cancer screening is an integral part of the patient examination within the dental department and onsite X-Ray and CT imaging is also available. The state-of-the-art onsite Cone Beam CT scanner allows patients to have indepth imaging on the same day as opposed to being referred to a specialist imaging centre. The Centre offers a private health insured essentials package for adults and children via Simply Health Denplan allowing patients to sign up for their continuous dental health checks and hygiene by paying a monthly fee.

Within the last 5 years FACEmed has fast become an integral part of the infrastructure of Crays Hill and the local community in Billericay contributing to local employment, upskilling, training and development of Essex-based clinical staff such as apprentice dental nurses and specialist registrar surgeons in foot and ankle surgery.
