Skin Cancer Surgical Audit
Designed to improve the quality of patient care and outcomes, the Sonic Healthcare Skin Cancer Surgical Audit allows referring doctors with an interest in skin cancer to participate in a comparative review of their personal findings against those of their peers and the wider GP cohort.
