GPs required to take pictures of lesions before skin cancer referrals


It won't be every GP who gets trained to use a dermatoscope. So that's an appt to see me, me to refer to my partner with the training, who's on holiday for a fortnight... We have an obligation to refer ALL suspected cancers within 24 hours.This is dangerous. PS the only thing more appalling than my knowledge of dermatology are my photography skills. Our local consultant has asked we do NOT send her photos!
