SkinHealth UK was established to offer a state of the art private skin cancer screening service currently not available on the NHS.
Long term survival rates from skin cancer are improving and increasing all the time but this is dependent on early identification and the implementation of an appropriate treatment pathway designed for the individual.
SkinHealth UK combines the experience of leading skin specialists from across the UK with the latest approaches and techniques in screening for skin cancer.
SkinHealth UK clinics offer SkinCheck, 2nd Opinion and OneStop – Skin diagnostic services, all conducted by experienced specialist nurses and leading local consultants.
In addition, skin clinics are equipped with state-of-the-art technology such as digital dermoscopy.
All the technologies used at SkinHealth UK have been fully validated and are in regular use in the UK and around the world.
