We are dedicated to early detection and prevention of skin cancer

We offer a comprehensive skin check service for our patients.

Skin checks can be provided by all of our GPs however Dr Mark Fry and Dr Wayne Hurlow are expertly trained and accredited.

Who should get a skin check?

  • If you have previously been diagnosed with skin cancer.
  • A strong family history of skin cancer or significant sunburns.
  • If your risk is high see below for a helpful link.

If your risk is low and you are concerned about a spot, make an appointment with your usual Doctor to have it reviewed.

We do not recommend routine skin checks for patients under 20 years old, however if you are concerned please make an appointment with your usual Doctor for a review.
