Sandwell and West Birmingham residents are being warned of the risks of skin cancer as temperatures rise this month. The plea comes from NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) during Skin Cancer Awareness Month, which takes place this May.
NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group is responding to a rallying call as part of Dementia Action Week 2019 and launching a summer-long engagement campaign.
Dementia Action Week, 20th to 26th May, will kick off the engagement campaign from the CCG which will run until July.
New research is being published this week revealing that one in three people have stress related to their body image.
A stalwart of the NHS and Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG, Richard Nugent, died on Friday evening having lost his battle with a long-term illness.
Prof Nick Harding, Chair of the CCG, said: “Richard was an amazing man, a true gentleman and community champion and an advocate of the NHS. He will be greatly missed.“
Richard stood down from his role as a non-executive direction of the CCG in June of last year. He worked in the health service for 35 years and was involved with Sandwell and West Birmingham since 2000. He served on the Primary Care Commissioning Committee and Audit Committee, and chaired Sandwell PCT, 2006-2011.
