Quality standard

Update information

Update information

January 2024: This quality standard was updated and statements prioritised in 2016 were replaced. The topic was identified for update following the annual review of quality standards. The review identified:

  • changes in the priority areas for improvement

  • updated guidance on melanoma.

Statements are marked as:

  • [new 2024] if the statement covers a new area for quality improvement

  • [2016, updated 2024] if the statement covers an area for quality improvement included in the 2016 quality standard and has been updated.

The previous version of the quality standard for skin cancer is available as a pdf.

Minor changes since publication

March 2024: We made changes to the rationale and audience descriptor sections for quality statement 1 to include voluntary and community organisations as examples of a local partner.
