Healthcare Group’s Mole and Skin Lesion Clinic
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. In Guernsey, non-melanoma skin cancers account for approximately 45% of all diagnosed cancers and the incidence of skin cancer in younger people is increasing on an annual basis.
Prevention is better than cure, and when detected early, treatment is usually simple.
The Mole and Skin Lesion Clinic can undertake:
A whole-body skin-check.
Full body digital mole mapping.
The assessment of moles or any other skin lesions of concern.
The assessment and treatment of sun-damaged skin.
Advice on how to protect your skin and monitor yourself for signs of concern.
Important information for patients attending the mole and skin lesion clinic
Please do not wear any makeup as this makes the assessment of facial skin very difficult.
Undertaking a full skin check will require undressing to the undergarments. Please wear something you would feel comfortable in, such as a pair of shorts and a sports bra. If you would like a chaperone to be present, please can you inform us before the appointment.
Dr Ed Partridge runs the clinic at the Rohais Surgery on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. He is accredited by the RCGP and the British Association of Dermatologists in skin lesion management and skin surgery. He is also a member of the Guernsey Multidisciplinary Skin Cancer Team.
Dr Partridge holds a master's degree in Practical Dermatology with distinction. His dissertation focused on the diagnosis and treatment of sun-damaged skin and skin cancers. In addition, he has been awarded the Expert Certificate of Skin Cancer Medicine by the Bond University, Australia.
Dr Partridge uses a specialist skin microscope, called a dermatoscope, to undertake a very detailed skin assessment.
After the assessment a comprehensive treatment plan will be discussed:
Areas of sun-damaged skin can be managed at the clinic. This can involve either freezing the lesion (cryotherapy) or specialist creams which are available on prescription.
Patients with low-risk skin cancers or benign lesions that are problematic will be advised about having these removed. Where appropriate an appointment will then be made for this to take place.
High-risk skin cancers or lesion that are surgically complex will usually require referral for further treatment at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital or the Medical Specialist Group.
Joint Care offers both diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasound-guided injections.

Full Body Mole Mapping
Our Laser-guided FotoFinder Bodystudio ATBM Master System, takes total body mapping to a completely new and unprecedented level of quality. The favoured system of many top London Clinics, the ABTM Master images the entire skin surface and uses artificial intelligence to identify any moles or skin lesions with features of concern. When undertaken at regular intervals, usually annually, it will also identify moles that are new or changing.
This service includes a full body skin check with Dr Partridge.
This service is particularly useful for:
patients with a history of skin cancer
patients with multiple moles
patients with dysplastic naevus syndrome
patients on immunosuppression
patients with a strong family history of melanoma
patients with a background history of significant sun exposure
If you have undergone mole mapping elsewhere you are welcome to bring copies of the previous reports which can be cross-referenced with our assessment.
If you want to book total body mapping, don't hesitate to contact the Rohais Medical Practice on 01481 723322.
