THE TREATMENT PROCESS ...
INTERESTED IN COMMUNITY PDT ?..
The average Clinical Commissioning Group in the United Kingdom treats over 1,000 basal cell carcinomas every year.4 This figure is growing each year increasing the demand on existing services.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is a treatment option for non melanoma skin cancer. PDT has similar outcomes to surgery but causes less scarring.3 With a large static lamp PDT can be time consuming and people can have to travel significant distances to central clinics.
With Ambulight PDT delivered in the community people can be treated in a 20-30 minute appointment, with the treatment finished at home.
Ambulight PDT also results in savings of up to £8005 per treatment versus existing treatment costs for surgery in the National Health Service.
More convenience for people being treated, similar outcomes and reduced expenditure.
