A group of volunteers has raised over £1300 to help doctors in Grantham spot the signs of skin cancer.

The money is being donated by Grantham League of Friends to the dermatology department at Grantham & District Hospital in a bid to further improve patient care. The department has bought two new dermatoscopes, which can help determine whether a skin lesion is cancerous.

Dr Julia Schofield, Consultant Dermatologist at Grantham, said:

"the new dermatoscopes have transformed the running of the clinics. There is much less disruption, quicker and clearer diagnosis, which has helped to further improve patient experience".
