Refer a Patient

 

Doctors can complete our online Referral Form (see below). Our staff will contact your patient shortly afterwards to arrange an appointment.


General Practitioners can refer patients to the Foundation for early consultation. The Foundation has a number of dermatologists working in private clinics, and we can organise an early consultation for your patients.

 

Patients presenting with a biopsy-proven skin cancer, or a lesion highly suspicious of skin cancer,  will be seen by our Skin Cancer Assessment Clinic very quickly.

 

GPs can also refer patients who have undergone a transplant and are presenting with biopsy proven skin cancer, or lesions highly suspicious of skin cancer. These people can be referred to our Transplant Clinic, and they will also be seen very quickly.


Appointments cannot be made prior to receipt of the referral. All patients are triaged on the basis of information provided in their referral, and will be contacted to make an appointment shortly after its receipt.

 

Surgical referrals

Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons can refer patients for Advanced or Mohs’ Micrographic Surgery. The referral is to include the past pathology reports relating to the site and photographs of the area to be treated.


We are an Accredited and Registered Day Surgery facility, catering for both private and public patients. Any out of pocket expenses will be discussed with patients/family members, prior to treatment. 

 

Medical Photography referrals

Specialised professional photography for full body mole surveillance, scalp photography or localised imaging of specific conditions. 

 

To refer a patient for medical photography simply print and complete either our Mole Photography Request Form or Scalp Photography Request Form. Please give this completed request to the patient so they can organise a time that suits them with our photography department.
