Please note both DrSkinlaser Clinics in Victoria, and Nanaimo- are closed until a further notice appears on this website.
This is a basic public health precaution, to limit potential spread of COVID 19,
Dermatology is not generally an emergency service, if however you do have an urgent skin care issue….contact your Family Doctor, or attend your local Hospital Emergency Room.
As some may be aware, Dr Hancock attended a medical conference in the UK last week- before all the current quarantine protocols were introduced.In consequence DrHancock is in self quarantine as per the recent government advisory.
Furthermore, Dr Hancock has been in contact with Public Health, and as a health care worker, who may soon be needed to work at the local hospital,Dr Hancock is being tested for COVID 19.
Some may find it amusing that a Dermatologist would offer his services to the local hospital, but Dr Hancock was a remote rural GP for 15 years before specializing in Dermatology, and holds postgraduate training and diplomas in Child Health, Ob Gy, and anaesthesia…..DCH, DRCOG,DA….each of these diplomas granted after approved training and examination by the three UK principal colleges of Medicine.
DCH…..Royal College of Physicians of England.
DRCOG….Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology , UK.
DA…..Royal College of Surgeons of England.
In the meantime everybody should remain calm, and take the sensible precautions as directed by the government.
Stay away from crowded places, self isolate if possibly exposed to COVID 19, self quarantine if any cold or flu symptoms.
More information as to when the DrSkinlaser Clinics will open will be posted on this website….
In the meantime…
Keep Calm and Carry On…..with caution!
Dr Julian A Hancock
