Therapists at Titanic Spa will receive training on how to detect early signs of skin cancer

Titanic Spa, an eco-spa in West Yorkshire, UK, has announced a new partnership with skin cancer charity Skcin, that will see its spa therapists undergo training to spot the early signs of the disease.

Therapists at the Titanic Spa have been enrolled in Melanoma and Skin Cancer Early Detection (MASCED) training, Skcin's National Accreditation programme developed to raise awareness around the importance of sun protection, which can aid in the prevention of up to 86 per cent of melanoma. It will enable therapists to spot the early signs of skin cancer while delivering treatments.

Additionally, the spa will utilise Skcin's supportive awareness resources, which offer vital information on the prevention and early detection of skin cancer, as well as advocate the 'Five S's of sun safety' - Slip on a t-shirt, Slop on SPF, Slap on a sunhat, Slide on sunglasses and Shade from the sun.

Amy Barton: director of the Titanic Spa, said: "Our therapist team are skincare professionals so extending their training to skin surveillance and how to identify suspicious lesions seemed like a logical next step. They are prefectly placed to detect the early signs of skin cancer and in a unique position to become poweful advocates in the fight against cancer. If this means they can potentially save client, staff or family lives, that that would be an incredible achievement and reward for us all."

Claire Dale, campaign manager for MASCED, said: "We are hugely grateful for the support, energy and enthusiam of the entire team at Titanic Spa. Their dedication to this initiative clearly demonstrates their commitment to providing an unrivalled service to their guests."
