      - Cancer networks should establish two levels of multidisciplinary teams to care for patients.
      - Patients with a precancerous lesion should either be treated by their GP or referred.  
      - Patients who need specialist diagnosis should be referred to a doctor trained to diagnose skin cancer.
      - Skin cancer teams should work to agreed protocols.
      - Protocols should cover the management of care for people in high-risk or special groups.
      - Follow-up care should be agreed.
      - All patients and carers should have access to high quality information.
      - Information should be collected.
      - More research should be done.
