WA's harsh sun makes regular skin checks an essential part of keeping ourselves well, so this is the perfect opportunity to get those freckles checked. Have your spots checked for free by an experienced clinician if you hold a medicare card, as consults will be bulk billed on Freckle Checkle Day. You must take your medicare card to have the usual $58 gap waived.

The Freckle Checkle event seeks to raise awareness about skin cancer and gather funds to donate to melanomaWA and the ECU Melanoma Research Group. Close to $10,000 was raised for the two charities in 2015. The family day event has nifty raffle draws to enter, with prizes including gift packs from La Roche-Posay and Etain skin-hair-body, Sunbella parasols (i.e. stylish sun protection umbrellas) and a $100 voucher to spend at the Inglewood Hotel.

A UV booth will be set up at the Inglewood clinic. A camera specially designed to visualise ultraviolet wavelengths will generate images to show you the damage that UV rays can cause to our skin, and just how much sunscreen really helps. Australia has the highest incidence of melanoma in the world among both men and women. The good news is that there are steps we can take to prevent melanoma and other skin cancers by being sun smart and by catching funny spots and freckles before they become dangerous.
