Help Decide the Future of Digital Health Information
Update provided 21 April 2022.
As you know, Lismore Skin Clinic in Molesworth Street was destroyed in the recent floods, and we are trying to rebuild the site as soon as we can.
In the meantime we will be moving to St Vincent’s Hospital Specialist Medical Centre – Level 4, Suite 12 – 20 Dalley Street Lismore.
We hope to be up and running in the next two weeks (by early to mid May 2022) and our receptionists will soon begin calling our patients to rebook their appointments and catch up with their needs.
Once we have a firm opening date we will update this notification.
We look forward to seeing you soon in our new premises.
Many thanks for your patience and understanding in these heartbreaking times – stay safe.
