Australian Skin Cancer Clinics partnership with Surfing NSW

Posted on 12 Oct 2012

IPN and Australian Skin Cancer Clinics are delighted to announce a partnership with Surfing NSW.

After backing the NSW Longboard State Titles in 2012 Australian Skin Cancer Clinics has jumped on board to support grassroots surfing in NSW. The first pilot of the partnership took place at the Longboard Titles event with competitors offered check-ups at the Port Macquarie Clinic.

Surfing NSW judge Craig Henderson was one person who reaped the benefits of these checks and had a skin cancer successfully removed.

With Melanoma being one of the most common cancers affecting Australian youth, we see it as a perfect partnership to promote skin cancer awareness and prevention through events, membership and media.

Australian Skin Cancer Clinics will be supporting all forthcoming Surfing NSW events with co-branded signage, a new look beach-marshalling tent and skin cancer check-up vouchers available at select events.

IPN’s General Manager of Marketing and Communications, Julie Toma said, “Australian Skin Cancer Clinics is pleased to announce the new partnership with Surfing NSW and looks forward to raising community awareness regarding skin cancer awareness and prevention. Australia has the highest skin cancer incidence rate in the world and encouraging Australians to have regular skin checks is essential.”

Australian Skin Cancer Clinics began in 1999 and has expanded to 16 clinics in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia. Australian Skin Cancer Clinics was acquired by Independent Practitioner Network in 2011, strengthening the service offering with the support of a leading healthcare service provider.

The aim of Australian Skin Cancer Clinics is to provide caring, accessible and efficient service for early detection, diagnosis, treatment and management of skin cancer in the primary care setting.
