Skin/Melanoma Referrals

This clinic is for complex skin cancer cases. All patients must be referred to an individual clinician in Dermatology, Plastic surgery and Radiation Oncology who wil then refer to this clinic if deemed appropriate. New patient referrals will be assessed using a collaborative approach by the Multidisciplinary Team (MDT). Relevant referrals should be made via your general practitioner, we are unable to accept routine or annual skin checks for otherwise healthy patients. To assist in triaging our  patients appropriately, the following information is helpful:

Required Investigations

A completed signed referral form

Histopathology - if not biopsied, provide location, size & duration.
Advise if patient is on immunosuppression
Molecular pathology (BRAF, CKIT and NRAS) if completed

X-Rays – radiology and nuclear medicine images (only if already completed)

Operative reports (if carried out)
