Who we are
We are a team of specialised doctors and nurses. We work together to recommend the best options for the treatment of your melanoma. The Christie is a large teaching hospital. So we always have clinical trainees who may be present during your appointments with the doctor or nurse. As well as the names listed here, we also have clinical fellows and registrars. These are doctors specialising in melanoma, they are not with us permanently.
Patient-centred care - you come first
It is important that we know your views on what treatment/s would be acceptable to you. We will discuss these choices with you during your appointments.
How we work together
Every 2 weeks, the multi-disciplinary team has a meeting to discuss their patients. This is to allow the group of specialists to review all the information such as biopsy results, scans etc and to consider your opinion and your general health before arriving at a conclusion. This recommendation will take into account:
- All appropriate treatment options that are available to you
- Your suitability for any clinical trials
- Your opinion
