The Skin Health Institute undertakes corporate skin check programs for a wide range of companies and organisations in Melbourne.
Our program provides for skin checks to be completed by specialist dermatologists.
A referral from a GP is not required. The skin check will not be a cursory check just for skin cancers, but rather a thorough and comprehensive examination of the skin by a specialist dermatologist who will advise on relevant skin conditions.
Once the specialist has completed the screening, our specialist will discuss any findings with the patient. If it is a minor matter, then the specialist will provide advise ton how to treat or manage that skin condition. If further treatment is required, a referral will be given, which they may take to see their own doctor.
If suspicious skin lesions are found requiring urgent treatment, it is possible to fast-track patients into the Skin Health Institute’s surgical clinics.
The total time for each screen will vary but is usually 10 minutes.
Patient confidentiality is strictly maintained. We do not provide the employer with any information about the results of the skin check of any individual.
Our point of difference is that the skin check is conducted by a specialist dermatologist, not by a nurse or a GP. We will not be taking photos of suspicious lesions and sending them off to a dermatologist for review or taking a biopsy and sending it off to a pathologist. Our specialists are the experts in making these diagnoses.
The Skin Health Institute Corporate Skin Check Program was put on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic. We anticipate being in the position to recommence offering the full service again in the near future.
Further information will be updated on this page as it becomes available.
