The event is designed to give advice on how skin cancer occurs, what to look for, how you can protect your skin and what treatments are available.

Dr Eunice Tan, Dermatology Consultant at NNUH, said: “In Norfolk, we have a population which may have spent many years working outdoors in agriculture and can be at risk of skin cancer. There is also increasing use of sun beds amongst young people.

“We can give advice on the risk factors for skin cancer and how to prevent it, although we are not able to offer mole checks at this event.”

The team is also raising funds for the Skin Cancer Research Fund is part of the hospital charity and is dedicated to raising funds for the benefit of skin cancer patients at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. For more information go to:
