Sun Awareness Week - Skin Cancer 2018 (May 14th - 20th)

We would like to promote awareness about skin cancer prevention and early detection of changes in moles. 

Dermatologists identified that 8 out of 10 people are failing to adequately apply sunscreen before going out in the sun. 

Key messages are:

  • Be sun aware    - use sun screen before going out into the sun
  • Be mole aware – monitor existing moles for changes

Cervical Screening

A cervical screening test (previously known as a smear test) is a method of detecting abnormal cells on the cervix. The cervix is the entrance to the womb from the vagina.

Detecting and removing abnormal cervical cells can prevent cervical cancer.
