Two out of every three Australians are diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70 and having regular checks is an effective strategy for early detection of skin cancers. 

This year we are partnering with Mates Against Melanoma to support Australia’s National Skin Check Day on Thursday, February 25th.  The number of skin checks performed at NHC clinics on this day will be aggregated and contribute to the goal of delivering 1000 skin checks across Australia. If your skin check is not up to date, book your appointment and cover off this important health check whilst contributing to a great cause.  You may also wish to contribute to the cause by a way of a donation, which will assist Mates Against Melanoma to fund future prevention and research programs.

Of course, if you aren’t able to attend a clinic next Thursday it is still important to have your skin checked annually.  Book online or call (02) 6178 0400 to book in with one of our GPs at a time that’s convenient for you.
