In January 2002 multiprofessional guidelines for the treatment of squamous cell carcinoma were published by the British Association of Dermatology in conjunction with the British Association of Plastic Surgery and members of the Faculty of Clinical Oncology of the Royal College of Radiologists. In July 2002 a survey was undertaken which demonstrated that despite the availability of these guidelines, there was no consensus of opinion regarding the treatment of squamous cell carcinoma amongst UK plastic surgeons (Staiano JJ, Juma A, Dhital SK, McGeorge DD Eur J Plast Surg 27:135 2004 ). It is now 3 years since the guidelines were published, and we have re-audited UK plastic surgeons to determine whether the published guidelines have affected the treatment of this common cutaneous malignancy. Our findings once again demonstrate that the guidelines have had little effect on clinical practice and that the treatment of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma varies widely amongst UK plastic surgeons.
