Cover up mate

Everyone should take precautions against sunshine and sunburn over the summer. This year NHS England is especially targeting men who work outdoors with the “Cover Up, Mate” campaign. Farmers, builders, gardeners and sportsmen are all being asked to take a safer approach to the sun to help reduce the incidence of skin cancer.

They have been targeted because the incidence of skin cancer in men is increasing at a faster rate than it is for women, and men who spend a high proportion of the day outdoors are at risk because increased exposure to sunlight increases the likelihood of developing skin cancer.
