Text section about clinic

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 per cent 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 specialist practice. Both referral options could involve additional cost and longer waiting times for the patient. We strive to provide universal access to professional screening, diagnosis and treatment that significantly reduces waiting times and saves lives.
