Our story

The National Skin Cancer Centres Founder Paul Elmslie recognised the need for innovation of the current skin cancer management method after the unnecessary death of a 31-year-old mother of two, who died while waiting for nine months to receive treatment at a public hospital. Paul subsequently pioneered in the development of the skin cancer clinic model in the late 1990s and developed 23 skin cancer clinics across the country.

In Australia, 55-65 percent of skin cancers are managed in primary care due a shortage of specialists. If the GP doesn't have the necessary skill set to address the patient's concern, the patient gets referred to the public hospital or a plastic surgeon. Both referral options involve high cost and long waiting times for the patient with a potential risk of dying while waiting for treatment.  We strive to provide universal access to professional screening, diagnosis and treatment that significantly reduces waiting times and saves lives.

How we make a difference

Improve access to skin cancer care and reduce the mortality and morbidity of the disease.

Reduce the waiting time for patients to receive efficient diagnosis and treatment.

Provide vital skin cancer care to communities with limited or no access to specialists.

Offer a high-quality referral option to local GPs managing patients outside their scope.

Relieve the public hospital system as most patients cannot afford specialist care.

Save lives by dramatically reducing the delay in diagnosis and treatment.
