*A spot check is a skin cancer examination. This can be for one spot or several. This does not involve any prescriptions or treatments. If you require a procedure after an examination one can be scheduled for you. For those using the online spot check service, we can schedule you for the appropriate procedure after the consultation.

Referral Expectations

COVID-19: Skin cancer treatments are an essential service, and all pre-booked appointments will continue as scheduled. Please wear a mask to your appointment, scan QR codes, and follow instructions given by staff. Skin cancers do not discriminate, so all patients welcome, irrespective of their vaccination status. Our staff are all fully vaccinated, including booster shots as applicable.

For specific skin lesions, you may use the online spot check service.

GP or Health Provider Refferals: Referrals can be made using the EDI (paulskin) or via email (admin@skinsurgeryclinic.co.nz).

Self Referrals: Patients can also make direct bookings with the clinic, if preferred. All procedure reports will be sent back to the patient's designated GP.


We are a Southern Cross Affiliated Provider and an NIB first choice provider. NOTE: Insurers normally cover the cost(s) for the examination & procedure – some insurers do not cover checks if a procedure is not needed - it is recommended that you check your policy.
