Advice on two week wait referral process for suspected skin cancer

Following a query regarding the two week wait referral process for suspected skin cancers, we thought it would also be useful to share the Pan-London suspected cancer referral guide for skin. This includes the risk factors and criteria for all suspected skin cancers including basal cell carcinoma. You find guidance and all the available cancer referral forms in the Cancer section   

DMC Community Dermatology 

The DMC Community Dermatology Service provides Consultant-led community based care and advice to NHS patients registered within Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge CCGs. Our service delivers assessment and treatment for a variety of skin problems, whilst bringing the highest standard of care closer to patients' home without the need for referral to secondary care. 

Please find the full guidelines downloadable below (including the full list of inclusions and exclusions complying with BHR POLCE policy) as well as the system-based referral forms.  

If you have any queries about what this service can provide for you and your patients, please call Ravi Iyer, Regional Operations Manager on 020 7635 1013. 

29 April 2019: We are aware that DMC has been experiencing some issues with their telephone system. We’ve been advised this is being addressed and should be fully resolved within two weeks. We apologise for any delay in responding to calls or any inconvenience to patients or GPs and practice staff.
