About Us

Our History

 

The skin cancer related clinics at Hamilton East Medical Centre have proven very popular and beneficial to patients.  Over time these services have outgrown their general practice home, resulting in the Hamilton Skin Cancer Centre being formed to house all services together under one roof.

The Hamilton Skin Cancer Centre was launched in August 2018 and will open in December 2018

You do not need to be a patient of the Hamilton East Medical Centre to enrol with the Hamilton Skin Cancer Centre, the two centres are separate companies, and will maintain separate patient records.

The two centres are a short walk apart and have shared parking facilities.

 

Parking

The Skin Centre can be accessed directly from Grey Street, with limited parking available, alternatively, patients can use the car parking facilities of the Hamilton East Medical Centre.
