Dear Mr Butler, it is crucial that you make an appointment for your uncle
with an oncologist who has experience in surgery and treatment of malignant
melanoma. It would, of course, be advisable to have him see the same specialist
who treated him previously as his medical records will be available. If you are
unable, because of whatever reason, to make an appointment with his previous
specialist, please contact the South African Oncology Consortium (SAOC) who
will be able to provide you with contact details of an oncologist in your area
who is experienced in the treatment of malignant melanoma. Contact details of
the SAOC: Telephone 012 667 2067. (MCH).
