Spot Check Clinic provides an essential service. We are open for consultations during COVID-19 lockdowns. Cosmetic and skin repair consultations and procedures are available for people who have received at least two doses of COVID vaccine.
If you are in quarantine or prefer not to attend in person, you may wish to consider our online consultation service (for single spots of concern).
We are open for all services, including skin checks, mole mapping, cosmetic mole removal, IPL, microneedling and low level light therapy.
You must wear a mask in the clinic.
Cosmetic services are available only to patients who provide evidence of COVID vaccination.
Precautions we take to minimise COVID-19 transmission
All Spot Check Clinic medical, nursing and administrative staff are vaccinated against COVID-19.
When COVID-19 restrictions are in effect, we use a combination of some or all of the following precautions.
You must wear a mask at all times when you are in Spot Check Clinic.
If you have a medical exemption and don't wear a mask, you are still at risk of acquiring or transmitting COVID, even if you are vaccinated. Please defer your skin check until after COVID-19 restrictions have lifted.
Maximum of 4 people allowed.
Patients only: no non-essential family/friends or others.
If your appointment is more than 10 minutes away, we ask that you wait outside.
Please sanitise your hands on entry.
All waiting room seating is separated by at least 1.5m
No eating or drinking is allowed in the waiting room.
During COVID-19 restrictions, we may not offer elective services, procedures that generate aerosols or consultations, or services that prolong the amount of time you spend in the clinic. These services may include:
- Molemapping/total body photography
- Cosmetic mole removal
- Cosmetic and skin repair consultations
- IPL treatments
- Microneedling treatments
During your consultation
Your doctor and nurse will wear a mask at all times during your consultation.
All equipment used during your examination and procedures is either disposable or sanitised before use, including patient gowns and bed sheets.
During your examination, your doctor may wear protective goggles, a gown and disposable gloves.
If you do not require a support person/carer, you must enter the clinic and attend your consultation alone.
Support persons/carers may attend consultations with:
- children under 16
- people who are unable to dress/undress without assistance
- people who are unable to understand instructions and advice during a medical consultation
There may be exceptions to these conditions in certain circumstances at our discretion.
All staff and contractors of Spot Check Clinic are fully vaccinated against COVID.
We provide essential skin cancer consultations, examinations and treatments to patients who have not been vaccinated. All unvaccinated patients must wear a mask at all times while in the clinic. Unvaccinated patients may be asked to wait outside, and consultation length will be kept to a minimum.
Unvaccinated people who are not patients of Spot Check Clinic are requested not to visit or enter the clinic.
All patients requesting cosmetic and skin repair services (e.g. cosmetic mole removal, IPL/BBL treatments, microneedling, low level light therapy) must provide evidence of receiving two doses of COVID vaccine.
