Skin Check requirement
Skin cancer can occur on areas of the body that do not directly meet the sun. As such the Skin Alert skin doctors conduct full head to toe skin checks including beneath undergarments.
If you do consent to having an all over body skin check, wish to have a chaperone present at the time of consultation or have any specific cultural or special concerns please inform one of our staff when arriving at reception or discuss this directly with your treating doctor prior to having your skin check.
We encourage our patients to take the following easy steps to ensure they’re safe:
- Have a regular skin check with a dedicated skin cancer doctor
- Ensure you and your family wear protective clothing whilst in the sun
- Wear a hat
- Seek shade
- Wear Sunglasses
- Always wear SPF 30+ sunscreen
If you have any concerns about you or a family member, it is important to get checked quickly. Contact us to make an appointment to see one of our highly trained doctors.
