NCCP Pigmented Lesions GP Referral Form
The NCCP are delighted to work with the Dermatology Services at the South Infirmary Victoria University Hospital, Cork to pilot the NCCP Melanoma GP Referral Guidelines and NCCP Pigmented Lesions GP Referral Form with GPs in Cork. These guidelines take into account evidence-based research, the findings of the National Cancer Strategy 2006, and expert opinion.
These guidelines aim to shorten the time period to diagnosis for those patients in whom there is a strong suspicion of melanoma. We hope to roll out the NCCP Melanoma GP Referral Guidelines and NCCP Pigmented Lesion GP Referral Form once the pilot has been completed.
We would very much appreciate your participation in this pilot. Our thanks to the dermatology teams, GPs and other health care professionals who assisted in the development of this guideline and form.
