The melanoma service
Patients are reviewed at St James’s University Hospital (SJUH) by the Leeds Melanoma Team
All patient cases are discussed at the melanoma Multidisciplinary team meeting on Thursday mornings which enables us to develop consensus treatment recommendations for each individual.
The MDT consists of highly trained and experienced specialists in melanoma skin cancer care which includes dermatologists, plastic surgeons, medical and clinical oncologists, radiologists , histo-pathologists, clinical nurse specialists and research nurses.
Many patients will require different speciality services and so we ensure that they see the appropriate specialist through our weekly joint clinics, which take place on Thursday afternoons in the Bexley wing at St James's hospital.
The Leeds melanoma unit is at the forefront of malignant melanoma research. The department is involved in multiple areas of research and has extensive experience in clinical trials looking at new treatments for melanoma.
