Our Dermatology and Plastic Department diagnoses and manages patients with Skin Cancer such as Melanoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma, and Basal Cell Carcinomas as well as rare Skin cancers, such as Merkel Cell Tumours and Cutaneous Sarcoma.
The Skin Multi-Disciplinary team (MDT) are able to provide current guidelines, statistics and latest protocols for the management of Skin malignancies and take pride in chairing the weekly regional meeting. The meeting is attended by Plastic Surgeons, Oncologists, Dermatologists and Doctors of all grades as well as the Specialist Nursing Team.
You will be allocated a Skin Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) who will be contactable for support and will see you in clinic. Your Skin CNS will be contactable via email or phone; their contact details will be provided.
Your pathway will vary depending on your diagnosis. You may be seen by a Dermatologist as well as a Plastic Surgeon.
