Skin cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world. Non-melanoma skin cancer refers to a group of cancers that slowly develop in the upper layers of the skin. Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that can spread to other organs in the body.

The overall aims of the Skin ECAG are to provide specialist advice and guidance to the East Midlands Cancer Alliance, Clinical Commissioning Groups and the Specialist Commissioning Group (SCG) on the standards of service for patients with skin cancer reflecting current best practice and opportunities for development.

The Skin ECAG will aim to ensure that patients with skin cancer receive high quality equitable cancer care throughout the East Midlands Cancer Alliance regardless of geography or socio-economic factors and will, wherever possible, endeavour to improve the standard of care provided.
