It’s been a busy few months at Bluff Road Medical Centre. In addition to treating our valued patients and working towards opening our brand-new facility, we gave our brand a complete makeover.
As part of our brand transformation, we created a new UV Skin Cancer Clinic website. Same doctors. Same exceptional service. Just a fresh new look!
About the new website
Our UV Skin Cancer Clinic website is designed with our users’ experience in mind.
There’s plenty of useful information, from skin cancer awareness and detection tips to information about digital mole imaging and what to expect during an examination.

Introducing Dr Nyree Littler
To coincide with the launch of our new UV Skin Cancer Clinic website, we thought it was timely to shine a light on one of our valued team members, Dr Nyree Littler.
Nyree is an accredited skin cancer doctor with the Skin Cancer College of Australasia.
She studied at the University of Queensland, then completed two years of residency in Brisbane, as well as a dermatology rotation.
In 2017 Nyree moved to Melbourne and started her GP training. During her final term, she decided to extend her skills at a skin cancer clinic, and the rest is history. “I stayed there for a year after that and still work there three days a week – I had found my special interest!”
In March, Nyree joined Bluff Road Medical Centre as a GP and skin cancer doctor.
“I’m a very visual person so I always like looking for skin cancer and doing skin checks – it’s like a treasure hunt,” she said. “I’ve always loved sewing and embroidery, so I enjoy cutting skin cancers out too.”
Tips for looking after your skin this summer
Nyree said it’s important to remember that even on cloudy days, the UV Index can be high and you can get sunburnt.
Check the SunSmart UV Index daily to find out when sun protection is most critical.
“Checking the UV is better than just looking up at the sky,” said Nyree. “If it’s UV3 and above, that’s a time to be wearing sunscreen, and that’s generally anytime in summer in Australia.”
Protect your skin by remembering to:
- Slip on a shirt
- Slop on sunscreen
- Slap on a hat
- Seek shelter
- Slide on some sunnies.
Check your skin regularly at home from head to toe. If you notice something unusual or a change in any spots, book in for a skin check as soon as you can. And don’t forget to schedule an annual skin check.
“We see a lot of Basal Cell Carcinomas and Squamous Cell Carcinomas – they’re the more common ones,” said Nyree. “You do come across melanomas as well. We definitely do see more people come in for a skin check in summer, as they are wearing less clothing and they’re seeing more spots, which might trigger them to come in.”
