#Friday

We apologise today for cancelling todays appointments.

This week Dr. Livingston has been at the Hospital every night not finishing till 22:00 on average, last night it was past midnight.

Therefore, to manage his fatigue we have had to cancel today to give him a much needed break.

Thank you for your understanding.

Population 10 000

No regular oncall Emergency Doctor. Nil.

There are shires in WA also facing the exact same problem with populations over 4 000.

Dr. Livingston still remains the only Rural Generalist in this region to not only hold #Emergency but #Surgical credentialing with WACHS to provide a very unique & now a very highly sought after specialty.

This week is national skin cancer awareness week!

It is important to get a skin check every year.

Dr Livingston has advanced qualifications in skin cancer medicine and surgery and performs skin checks in the Hopetoun and Ravensthorpe practices and simple and complex skin surgeries including grafting at Ravensthorpe hospital.

Did you know that Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, including melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers. Every year in Australia skin cancers account for around 80% of all newly diagnosed cancers and around 2000 people die from this disease every year. However, more than 95% of skin cancer cases are caused by unprotected exposure to UV radiation from the sun, meaning it is a nearly entirely preventable cancer!
Skin Cancer Awareness Week reminds us to use a combination of sun protection measures:
- Slip on sun-protective clothing.
- Slop on SPF 30 or higher broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen 20 minutes before going outdoors (reapply every 2 hours).
- Slap on a broad-brimmed hat that protects your face, head, neck and ears.
- Seek shade.
- Slide on wrap-around sunglasses (that meet Australian Standard AS/NZS 1067)
