Mullumbimby skin doctor relocates to Tweed

Byron Shire locals can now find ex-Mullumbimby skin cancer physician Dr Chris Wetherall at South Tweed Heads.

Dr Wetherall, who had previously been practising in Mullumbimby, is welcoming patients to visit him at his new South Tweed practice, Tweed Health for Everyone Superclinic.

The Superclinic, which opened in May, features state-of-the-art skin cancer treatment facilities: from diagnostic technologies to on-site procedure rooms.

The Superclinic concept also sees GPs, allied health and other primary health care professionals working together to maximise patient health outcomes. For Dr Wetherall’s patients, this means access to a range of other health services should they be needed.

For patients unfamiliar with Dr Wetherall’s services, they can expect: full skin check screening, expert diagnosis and opinion on specific lesions, development of a management plan specific to their individual situation, performance of surgical procedures if needed, long-term follow-up regimes for all patients with previously diagnosed skin cancer, and referral to a wide range of specialist services when required.

Patients can call 07 5589 7555 or visit www.thesc.com.au to book.
Tweed Health for Everyone Superclinic is located at 33–35 Corporation Circuit, Tweed Heads South.
