Skin Academy

Welcome to the Greater Manchester Skin Academy

As a best timed practice pathway board, the Skin Academy is excited to work in conjunction with the Greater Manchester Cancer Alliance Skin Pathway Board. The skin academy will bring a series of events to educate workforces, particularly those in primary care networks for early diagnosis, along with those working in secondary care. 

We are pleased to announce that the first skin education event is now live and will focus on skin lesion recognition for professionals working in primary care.
