General Skin Checks

Early detection of skin cancer is crucial.

Most skin cancers can be successfully treated if detected early.

On an average day any one of our dermatologists may find ten skin cancers which may have otherwise gone undiagnosed.

If you notice any new spots or changes in the colour, size or shape of existing spots, see your GP as soon as possible.

If your GP is concerned, they will refer you to a Dermatologist.

Meet Our Dermatologists

Our dermatologists are held in high regard and are frequently referred patients from other dermatologists and specialists for a second opinion.

On an average day any one of our dermatologists finds 10 to 20 skin cancers which may have otherwise gone undiagnosed.

All of our dermatologists are highly skilled and experienced in the detection and treatment of cancer and melanoma, and in the accurate diagnosis and management of diseases of the skin, hair and nail.
