A world where nobody dies from skin cancer

One enthusiastic team
To save lives through universal access to skin cancer diagnosis and treatment
Over a decade ago, National Skin Cancer Centres was founded after the unnecessary death of a 31-year-old mother of two who waited nine months to receive treatment for a skin cancer on her lip at a public hospital. Moving skin cancer management from public hospitals to primary care skin cancer clinics allowed us to fill the void in skin cancer services created by a shortage of specialists.
We strive to provide universal access to professional screening, diagnosis and treatment that significantly reduces waiting times and saves lives. When the doctors at National Skin Cancer Centres don’t see patients, they teach critical skin cancer management skills to other GPs through our university-assured partner organisation HealthCert Education.
Our work in-centre and our education activities ensure we take a vital step towards reducing the mortality and morbidity of the disease in local communities.
Our dedicated team shares a passion for making a difference and saving lives. Our state-of-the-art facilities are staffed with doctors with advanced training in skin cancer and nurses who deliver care to the highest clinical standards, positioned ahead of the curve with the latest in diagnostic and therapeutic technologies.
We provide a “one-stop shop” to patients for quick access to high-quality, low-cost skin cancer care in local communities through professional screening, treatment and vital patient education of high-risk groups. The dedicated skin cancer clinics also function as referral centres and teaching facilities for local GPs.
