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 Requisites are NOT “Existing Practitioners in GP minor surgery of skin lesions. “ but “ Both novices and existing practitioners who wish an evidence-based approach to GP skin minor surgery”.
