Allocated in October each year

A generous bequest has made it possible for the Cancer Society Nelson Tasman to offer skin check vouchers (up to the value of $75 ) to people in the Nelson Tasman region. You can read our Position Statement on Primary Prevention of Skin Cancer Here

All of the allocation has now been used for October 2022.

Please contact your local GP to access a voucher if you believe you are high risk due to the following:

If you have:

  • A mole, freckle or spot that has changed in size, thickness, shape, colour or has started to bleed.

AND/OR

  • Lots of moles
  • A family history of melanoma
  • History of sunburn throughout life, especially during childhood
  • Skin that burns easily
  • Spend a lot of time working or playing outdoors

Cancer patients and their families deserve access to the best possible support available. The Nelson and Tasman Cancer Society is your first point of contact for cancer services.

The Nelson Tasman Centre focuses primarily on enhancing patient and family support systems; improving community well-being through health promotion (e.g. SmokefreeSunSmart); providing information and resources for the local medical community and the general public; and networking to improve communication links with other related organisations.
