Inner West Skin Cancer Clinic

Welcome to the Inner West Skin Cancer Clinic, formerly known as Norton Skin Cancer Clinic.


At the Inner West Skin Cancer Clinic we provide full body skin checks as part of skin cancer screening and surveillance, and prior to an aesthetic laser treatment. Our doctors have over 20 years of experience in treating skin cancer and are trained in the use of dermoscopy which has been shown to increase diagnostic accuracy. They will examine your skin thoroughly and recommend the most appropriate management plan.

We operate within the Nuvo Health Medical Centre – Leichhardt premises at 64 Norton Street Leichhardt.


  • Australia is the skin cancer capital of the world.

  • 2 in 3 Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70.

  • More than 2,000 Australians die from skin cancer annually.

  • The majority of skin cancers are caused by exposure to the sun.

  • Skin cancer is potentially preventable.

  • Regular skin examination should be considered part of a preventative approach.

  • Early detection saves lives and avoids invasive surgery and potential disfigurement.

Practice Fees

Skin Check Appointments

Skin Check appointments on weekdays will be privately billed. Your out-of-pocket after receiving your rebate will be between $50-$90.


Skin Procedures or Excisions

For Skin Excisions or Procedures, there will be a fee advised by the doctor prior to the patient providing consent.

The fee will vary based on the location and size of the lesion.

A complete fee list can be provided on request.

*Medicare rebates are an estimate, please be aware this may vary.



Please note a Non-Attendance Fee of $40 – $50 is payable if a patient does not attend their doctors appointment or if the appointment is cancelled with less than two hours notice.

If a patient fails to give 48hours notice or does not attend an allied health appointment, a Non-Attendance Fee from 50% of the consult fee will need to be paid.


At Inner West Skin Cancer Clinic, the quality care that you receive is a product of the dedication and expertise of our staff and a modern, well-equipped facility.

Current and previous governments have failed to regularly increase the Medicare rebates. This means Medicare rebates have never kept pace with the cost of living and have never covered the true cost of delivering quality medical care.

This charge ensures Inner West Skin Cancer Clinic can continue to provide you and your family with high quality healthcare whilst also covering the ever increasing costs of running a business in Sydney especially while under a Medicare freeze environment.

Inner West Skin Cancer Clinic has chosen to continue to subsidise your healthcare by setting our fees lower than the current recommended fee schedule set by the Medical Association of Australia (AMA).


Inner West Skin Cancer Clinic provides Medicare Ezyclaim for all rebates. Funds are directly deposited back onto your debit card instantly. Please enquire at reception for more information.
