To the Editor: Primary care skin cancer clinics continue to receive negative publicity. We have previously reported on the workload profile of one network of clinics.1 We report here the profile of clinical activity of the four MoleScan skin cancer clinics situated on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. Between them, these clinics have been open for a total of 22 years, ranging from 2 years to nearly 9 years of operation.
