The NICE clinical guidelines on skin tumours outlines how healthcare services for people with skin tumours should be organised.
The guidance published in February 2006 and updated May 2010 indicates that 'protocols should cover the management of care for people in high risk or special groups'. The guidance also indicates that certain types of treatment may also be needed by individuals who are at greater risk from skin cancer because of their genetic make up.
