RSLWA has successfully partnered with WA’s first comprehensive skin cancer clinic to offer all RSLWA members and their family members skin cancer services—from initial screening to excisions if necessary.
Chief Executive Officer, John McCourt, said the Mole Patrol Clinic situated at a number of Perth metro clinics can offer a comprehensive all-inclusive service at no cost due to its ability to provide bulk billing and no out-of-pocket costs.
“As a skin cancer sufferer myself I know how important it is to have regular check-ups,” Mr McCourt said. “This service is strongly supported by RSLWA and it is pleasing to be able to provide the benefit of being able to go to one medical outlet that can perform all the services needed from initial screening right through to more complex hospital treatment.”
Mole Patrol Medical Director, Dr Kim Hames, said the company was privileged to provide services to veterans and their families, as well as financial affiliate members of RSLWA.
The Mole Patrol organisation currently has one new outlet at Bibra Lake and is planning other clinics in the Perth metropolitan area and, over time, in regional centres. Also, the organisation is able to make visits to Sub-Branches for scheduled skin checks as well as examining telehealth technology to provide services to those who live in regional and remote areas of WA.
“With our bulk-billing and related arrangements, there will be absolutely no cost to patients unless they want a non-cancerous mole cut out or multiple dressings are required,” Dr Hames said.
“All onsite biopsies and excisions will be performed by experienced Practitioners and Surgical Specialists with more complex in-hospital treatment organised and arranged by our clinical team with no out-of-pocket fees.”
