Skin cancers

What we do

We see a range of people with suspicious skin conditions within two weeks of GP referral. Our specialist skin-related cancer clinics offer quick diagnosis and assessment, including biopsies which are then instantly sent to our histopathology team (who study tissues for changes brought about by disease) for a rapid response.

Our team of professionals which includes consultants, dermatology doctors, nurses and allied health professionals meets weekly to develop the best available plan for care and treatment of each one of our patients on an individual basis. We also link in with other health teams who need our expertise to ensure that people with skin cancer receive treatment that is seamless with the minimum amount of stress possible.

Our clinical nurse specialists deliver care to both inpatients and outpatients, ensuring they have access to information about their treatment and are supported from initial investigation and diagnosis through to recovery. They also work to make sure that a holistic patient assessment is carried out which looks at all of the needs of each patient—for example financial and emotional support for patients and carers. People can also use the service once treatment is completed in case they have any subsequent concerns.

The team at Chelsea and Westminster is led by Dr Louise Fearfield, supported by clinical nurse specialist Sophie Smith.
