Sun Awareness Week

09May 15May

Awareness Week

Sun Awareness week is the kick-off to our summer-long Sun Awareness campaign. The British Association of Dermatologists use this week to re-enforce the need for sun protection across the UK and inspire people to raise awareness themselves.

The theme for Sun Awareness Week is early detection. With most of the population having spent much of the past year inside their homes due to multiple lockdowns, less people will have been checking their moles or skin for changes, or would have hesitated when they should have booked an appointment with their GP. They want to highlight the importance of early detection; getting to know your skin and checking moles regularly can greatly improve prognosis.
