I have just completed the MASCED (Melanoma and Skin Cancer Early Detection) Accreditation Programme.
This programme has been developed by the national melanoma and skin cancer charity, Skcin and the objective of the scheme is to significantly raise awareness of the early signs and symptoms of skin cancer and to promote the early detection of melanoma, to improve prognosis and save lives.
The programme has also been developed to raise awareness of the importance of Sun Safety to aid the prevention of around 86% of melanoma and the majority of all skin cancer cases.
This supports the call by public health figures for a wider perspective on who is most effective to help improve the nation’s health and address concerns raised in the Government’s 2020 Skin Cancer Vision. Skcin strongly believes that offering this valuable training to the estimated 250,000 people working across the hair, health and beauty industry, will provide a vital first line of defence against this deadly and devastating disease.
I’m delighted to be able to offer this additional service to my clients. If you have any concerns about any moles, lumps and bumps, particularly if they’re in an area that is difficult to see yourself, please do ask me when you come for a treatment.
