Currently the only Fellow of the Skin Cancer College of Australasia working in Tasmania, Dr Delfin Sansom is an Accredited Skin Cancer Doctor who holds a master's degree in Skin Cancer from The University of Queensland, plus multiple additional qualifications in skin cancer management.

Dr Sansom is dedicated to providing the highest standard of skin cancer care for his patients. Complementing his clinical work, he is involved in the teaching of other doctors, general practitioners, and medical students. Passionate about advocating for patient care in the community, Dr Sansom is a council member for the Tasmanian Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. He provides collaborative skin cancer care, regularly attending multidisciplinary skin cancer and histology review meetings. It is here that complex cases are discussed and managed in a multidisciplinary setting within the medical community.

Dr Sansom offers the full array of skin cancer screening services and treatments that are available in an outpatient setting, including simple surgical and non-surgical treatments in addition to more complex surgical closures where clinically indicated. He audits his surgical practice using the SCARD clinic database and case discussion groups to ensure quality outcomes.

As a GP with a special interest and additional training in skin cancer medicine, Dr Sansom accepts new and existing patients without requiring a referral for their skin cancer care. Alternatively, he welcomes referrals from other GP colleagues and specialists.
