Sun Awareness Week
Sun Awareness week is the kick-off to our summer-long Sun Awareness campaign. We use this week to re-enforce the need for sun protection across the UK and inspire people to raise awareness themselves!
Sun Awareness Week 2024 will be from 6 May to 12 May. Our focus this year will be around raising awareness of non-melanoma skin cancer and best practices for people to check their skin for this very common type of skin cancer.
Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the UK, and the number of people diagnosed with the condition has risen steeply since the 1970s. There are two main categories of skin cancer – melanoma and non-melanoma. This section will provide you with a brief overview of skin cancer, but more information can be found in our Patient Information Leaflets located in the A-Z of Conditions, under the different cancer names.Read More
