In early 2011, we made a decision to establish a dedicated skin clinic at Mead Medical. It has been known for a while that skin cancer can be detected by practitioners, trained in the management of skin cancer, conducting a thorough skin check.

Dr Carragher, Dr Do, Dr Yeung, Dr Uppal and Dr du Preez have all undertaken significant training and are very capable of detecting and managing skin cancer. 

We have recently opened up more appointments at our clinic and these are filling fast. So make sure you book in quickly - we look forward to seeing you soon!
