LOOK AFTER YOUR SKIN

At Skcin we are dedicated to preventing
skin cancer through education...
SKIN CANCER IS THE MOST
COMMON CANCER IN THE UK
Skin cancer kills more people in the UK
than Australia - the UV capital of the world!
RATES OF SKIN CANCER
ARE RISING FASTER THAN
ANY OTHER CANCER
and it is now one of the biggest cancer
killers in the 15-34 age group!
ALMOST ALL SKIN CANCERS
ARE CAUSED BY OVER
EXPOSURE TO UV
That means that almost all skin cancers
are preventable by being sun savvy!
THAT'S WHY SKCIN ARE
DEDICATED TO PROMOTING
Through national educational,
accreditation schemes, campaigns,
partnerships and initiatives...
TO REVERSE THE SOARING
RATES OF SKIN CANCER FOR
OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS
Knowledge is power. It's time to make
a change. Education is key, a culture
change is required and that's our mission.

Dr. Chris Steele has been the "resident doctor" on the popular ITV This Morning programme for over 20 years. Chris who qualified as a doctor in l968 also writes for both Woman magazine and Top Sante. Perhaps more than any other clinician, Dr Chris had pioneered the use of the television and internet mediums to inform and educate the general public on a whole range of health matters, including having his own skin cancer removed live on the This Morning show.
Dr Chris Steele believes like Skcin, that awareness and education are key in reducing the incidence of skin cancer in the UK and endorses Skcins' National Sun Safe Schools accreditation scheme which launched in 2013.
