Whilst we endeavour to provide a 'gold standard' service to all course participants, if you are registering less than 72 hours before the start of the event, you should be aware that some materials may not be readily available on the day and we may contact you with regards to catering arrangements.

We have not rested on our laurels. This regularly-updated minor surgery course programme has armed delegates from the Scottish Islands to the London borough of Tower Hamlets with the knowledge and skills to deliver a safe, stress-free, evidence-based skin surgery service in general practice. The many hands-on closely-supervised practical sessions will cover the whole syllabus:

  • Simple rules for confident lesion recognition
  • Avoid common risks by being prepared
  • Seek valid consent and avoid the stress of complaints
  • Impress patients with comfortable and effective local anaesthesia
  • Cryotherapy, curettage and cautery with small group practical sessions
  • Logical steps in the excision biopsy of moles and blunt dissection of cysts
  • Ingrowing toenail surgery without tears
  • Skin closure to minimise suture marks
  • DOPS assessment to document how good you will be
  • Good notekeeping and audit

The course materials will form a regularly updated reference in published literature and delegates will have access to ongoing clinical advice from the course lead
