    • Who are we

       

      The Flying Skin Cancer Doctor is a network of highly skilled Skin Cancer Physicians who travel to regional, rural and remote locations delivering a start to finish skin cancer diagnostic and treatment service to patients and clients at a high risk of developing skin cancer.

      Our goal is to detect skin cancer early, in particular melanoma, which can be life-threatening. Due to our expertise and ability to treat on the spot, we will be able to avoid unnecessary referral to regional and capital city health services.

    The community we work for

    Many communities have difficulties in attracting General Practitioners let alone Plastic and Skin Cancer surgeons. Many patients need to travel long distances just to see a GP for a diagnosis and then another trip back for treatment. If their case is out of the expertise of the GP then they need a referral to a regional centre where surgeons can be found. 

    Corporate

     

    At FSCD, our goal is to establish long term relationships with employers, helping them to add massive value to their employees.The Flying Skin Cancer Doctor also welcomes the opportunity to work with Mining companies and their local communities. We can organise community based clinics to run in conjunction with the same clinics as run onsite at the Mining company itself.

    Government

     

    Many government departments are regular engagers in on site skin cancer checks and are not under the same financial stringency as the private sector. Indeed this will be much more likely where community clinics will be run concurrently.

    Nursing Homes

     

    The Flying Skin Cancer Doctor is perfectly equipped to visit aged care facilities and provide skin cancer checks, diagnosis and surgical management all on site. We are happy to work with existing GPs and nursing staff to coordinate on site clinics and to perform any surgical management on site. We are able to visit patients in their rooms if they are immobile.
