Supporting our patients through COVID-19
Australian Skin Cancer Clinics provide an essential service for the diagnosis, treatment and ongoing care of patients affected by skin cancer. Please be assured that every precautionary measure has been implemented at our clinics to protect you, our staff and doctors.
If you have a fever, cough, sore throat or shortness of breath and you have travelled, please contact us via phone prior to making a booking or visiting the clinic to reschedule your appointment.
Welcome to Australian Skin Cancer Clinics
Our aim is to provide caring, efficient and accessible service for early detection, diagnosis, treatment and management of skin cancer in the primary setting.
We are offering telehealth consultations for all patients 70 years of age or older, those who are unwell, travelled overseas or been in close contact with someone who has travelled in the last 14 days and those who have self-isolated due to concerns about becoming infected in the community. Our online booking system will be updated to include telehealth consults.
Lockdowns and Skin Checks
Skin cancers (melanomas, SCCs, BCCs) and other cancers do not stop during lockdowns. Doctors, GPs and Specialists, have seen fewer patient consultations and diagnoses relating to skin cancer checks.
Skin cancers can be silent - unnoticed, unrecognised and asymptomatic, and need to be examined with dermatoscopes by trained clinical eyes. When diagnosed early, they can be treated early, and in most cases cured. Most early skin cancers can be treated at the local clinic. Lockdowns should not be a reason for your health and medical conditions to go unchecked. Any concerns should not be delayed.
Australian Skin Cancer Clinics provide this essential service and are open as usual during lockdowns. (Please check your nearest clinic for hours.)
