Spot Check Clinic provides an essential service. We are open for consultations during COVID-19 lockdowns.
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).
Open for all services, including skin checks, mole mapping, cosmetic mole removal, IPL, rosacea assessment and treatment, microneedling and LED light therapy.
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 or mandates are in effect, we use a combination of some or all of the following precautions. Many of these precautions still apply even when there are no COVID-19 restrictions.
Skin clinics are a potentially high risk environment due to close physical contact during your examination and treatments, and a relatively high number of medically vulnerable patients. This means our doctor, nurse and other team members may continue wearing masks even though the government mandate has been discontinued.
If you prefer to wear a mask, they are available from our receptionist.
We limit the number of people allowed in the waiting room to assist in social distancing.
If your appointment is more than 10 minutes away, we ask that you wait outside. There are many excellent cafés
All waiting room seating is separated by at least 1.5m
No eating or drinking is allowed in the waiting room.
There are currently no restrictions on any of the medical or elective cosmetic services we provide.
During COVID-19 restrictions, we may not be able to offer elective services, procedures that generate aerosols or any 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 may wear a mask during your consultation.
All equipment used during your examination and procedures is either disposable or sanitised before use, including patient gowns and bed sheets.
Support persons/carers may attend consultations.
During times of higher COVID transmission, we may limit accompnying/support persons to the following cases:
- children under 16
- people who are unable to dress/undress without assistance
- people who would have difficulty with communication or comprehension 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.
