About Us

Our practice:
Launceston Skin Cancer Clinic was founded by our experienced skin cancer doctors and is based within the Launceston Health Hub.

There is no referral required. Both "spot checks" and full skin examinations are offered.

We have a state of the art procedure room, which gives our patients best access to surgical treatment outside of a hospital setting.

We offer digital dermatoscopy images to monitor concerning moles.

Specialist Referrals
If specialist referral is required then we can refer you to other surgical specialities based at the Launceston Health Hub or to a Specialist of your choice.

General Practice:
Launceston Skin Cancer Clinic is separate to Launceston Medical Centre. You will be referred back to your regular GP for your general health care needs.

Should you not have a regular GP then please visit Launceston Medical Centre, which is based at the Launceston Health Hub for your general health care needs. You can also call us on (03) 63 888 111 with any queries. 

Results:
The staff at the skin cancer clinic will contact you regarding results (usually a few working days after the biopsy / excision) and organise any follow up as required.

Your rights:
If you have a problem, we would like to hear about it. Please feel free to talk to your doctor or receptionist. You may prefer to write to us or use our suggestion box. We take your concerns, suggestions and complaints seriously. However, if you wish to take the matter further and feel that you need to discuss the matter outside of the surgery, please phone the Health Quality & Complaints Commission on 1800 001 170 (free call in Tasmania) or send an email to health.complaints@ombudsman.tas.gov.au.
