  • Teledermatology: 2ww pathway paused from 16 October
Add to CPD Start a discussion

In April 2020, the 2ww teledermatology referral route was introduced in response to COVID-19 as a way of reducing face-to-face appointments in secondary care. 

Evidence has shown that the 2ww pathway has not avoided face-to-face appointments at the Royal Free London or Whittington Health. 

Lack of image quality and inadequate referrals were factors in the decision to pause. Lessons have been learned and we will be working with primary and secondary care to ensure this pathway can be implemented safely and effectively for patients, primary and secondary care over the next 12 months.

For all 2WW patients, please refer using the normal 2ww dermatology pathway.
