At Newcastle Skin Check, we gladly accept referrals from GPs for the management of all aspects of skin cancer - from full skin checks to complex excisions on the nose, lips and ears. We can accept referrals via Medical Objects, email, fax or post. If there is an urgent patient case, our doctors will be able to see your patient on either the same day or following day, in most cases.
Newcastle Skin Check run a Melanoma Meeting every two months. A histopathologist attends and we discuss melanomas recently diagnosed, with particular attention paid to the more difficult cases. Anyone is able to attend.
