Review of proposed community dermatology service

The GM Clinical Senate reviewed proposed plans for a community dermatology service and referral management system. It found that in principle the model was sound and offered a number of recommendations in relation to clinical issues including cancer two week rules and management of emergencies and wider issues such as education and training; quality metrics and patient and carer feedback.
