Urgent skin cancer referral pathway

This is the PDF (click on link below) of a presentation I am giving this afternoon (22nd March 2017) for Southampton GPs about how to make best use of the 2 week wait urgent skin cancer pathway.

Please note, while we sometimes can remove skin cancers on the day, and will try to do so in the case of nodular melanomas, we can’t guarantee to do this, so don’t tell patients to expect it. Many tumours, e.g. SCCs on the scalp or BCCs on the noseCCG 2 week wait, require a skin graft which is 90 minutes in Day Theatre with a highly experienced skin surgeon, common sense dictates we can’t just provide this off the peg in a busy clinic setting.
