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).
You must still wear a mask.
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 are in effect, we use a combination of some or all of the following precautions.
Mask-wearing requirements have eased recently. These easing does not include health service settings. You are still legally required to wear a mask indoors at health care facilities.
Skin clinics are a high risk environment due to close physical contact during your examination and treatments, and a relatively high number of medically vulnerable patients.
We prefer you to 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, we may ask for evidence of your exemption, or for the reason for your exemption.
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.
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 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 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.
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 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.
Unvaccinated people who are not patients of Spot Check Clinic are requested not to visit or enter the clinic.
