With the school holidays about to begin, Dr Nick Harding from NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group (SWBCCG) is urging people to take care when enjoying the sunshine.
Keeping active in the fresh air is good news for our health but exposure of unprotected skin to the sun’s harmful rays can cause serious problems including sunburn, heatstroke and even cancer.
