How to take a good (medical) selfie

1 Corinthians 13:12 King James Version (KJV)

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face

Selfies. We’ve all done it. Some good, some bad, some downright embarrassing. However, there are some embarrassing pictures you may want to see the light of day – with your doctor. That funny rash that goes away, that cut you weren’t sure needed stitches or that mole you’ve been keeping an eye on.

(Unlikely to be a medical issue)

Smartphones and cameras are in our bags and wallets and people are using them!

The ABC recognises the medical selfie and here at PartridgeGP we see and take many medical photos.

There are many benefits:

We can clarify the lesion/area/rash of concern to You

We can document changes over time or with treatment

We can use the images to obtain a second or subspecialist opinion

We can use the images for teaching and training

Of course, we provide the same great high quality service for clinical photography as we do for all of the work in General Practice and so we are guided by information like this.

We also MUST get Your informed consent for all of this! We will ask You whether you are happy with clinical photography, and You can specifically consent to any or all of the above uses. No posting to Facebook!

PartridgeGP is proud to provide excellence in General Practice Skin Cancer Medicine and Surgery – and great Clinical Photography is part of this. We look forward to helping you with regular skin checks and any treatment you may need. Book your skin check right here.
