NICE to review skin cancer guidance13th March 2009
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence has announced a review of its skin cancer guidelines.
The move follows concerns from GPs about some of the recommendations in the guidance around GP involvement in minor surgery and how it is being interpreted and implemented.
National Cancer Director Professor Mike Richards is to chair a meeting in April between NICE, representatives of the BMA, the RCGP and the British Association of Dermatologists to address the concerns and review the recommendations in the guidance and the subsequent Cancer Peer Review Measures.
