May is National Skin Cancer Awareness Month.
As a MASCED (Melanoma and Skin Cancer Early Detection) accredited professional, I feel it is my duty to share this new My Skin Doctor app with you all.
People seem reluctant to visit their GP with anything other than Covid-19 related issues at the moment, and even before this situation took hold, a national Consultant shortage meant that typical waiting times for a new patient appointment in dermatology were 18 weeks! With this app, you can get advice and a care plan within 3 days.
Already successfully working with the NHS, CCGs (Clinical commissioning groups) and GPs across Southern England, the Self-Pay App service is now available to us all, without needing a GP referral.
The benefits include:
- Massively reduced waiting times for clients/patients presenting with a skin concern
- Immediate care plan delivered within 72 hours which is simultaneously communicated to the patient’s GP and included in patient records
- Skin cancers diagnosed and treated without delay resulting in higher rates of survival
- Elimination of misdiagnosis by GPs due to lack of specialist training
- Reduced anxiety caused by delays in diagnosis and delivery of care plan
- Significant cost and time savings for patients who don’t need to take time off work to visit a clinic appointment
- Gives users the option to take charge of their own skin health
- Excellent 4.5/5* feedback attests to patient satisfaction and ease of use
- Use of the App will support the vital work of Skcin that is dedicated to the prevention and early detection of skin cancer
The MySkinDoctor App is free to download with private consultations priced at £75 – £5 of which is donated to Skcin to support our vital work in the prevention and early detection of skin cancer nationwide.
It’s simple to use; download the app –> https://www.myskindoctor.co.uk/ , upload a photo of your skin with a few details and wait up to 3 days for a Consultant Dermatologist to review your case and provide you with a diagnosis where possible along with a management plan and information about your condition.
Stay home, stay safe.
