HMF Spot Check

SPot Check Tally

The HMF Spot Check campaign was introduced over the summer over 2020/2021.

Thanks to Funding from Novartis Pharmaceutical and The Wests Group, and the generosity of the Doctors from Newcastle Skin Check who donated their time, we were able to run 7 free skin check clinics out of the Cooks Hill Surf Club at Bar Beach.

Doctors completed a total of 723 Free Skin Checks.

Found over 175 suspicious spots.

36 Suspected melanomas

8 confirmed melanomas in 7 patients.

By far the most impactful education program we have undertaken.

We look forward to extending the program in the future and expanding to Lake Macquarie and the Hunter.
