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
