 We would like our government to follow Australia and ban all commercial and private sunbeds in the UK (those used in hospitals should be exempt). As a skin cancer survivor this is something I feel very strongly about. Sunbeds are unregulated and unsafe. There is an age limit of 18 for usage but this is regularly flouted and there is no way to affectively police it.

Salons, gyms etc are advertising stronger tubes and offers for more and more time on the sunbeds. Skin Cancer rates are rising, there were 15,906 cases of Malignant Melanoma in 2015 and 86% of those were preventable. There are over 2,400 deaths from skin cancer every year in the UK, that's around 6 people per day. Despite repeated warnings from cancer charities, the NHS, the government etc the rates are rising and will continue to do so unless something is done. We believe the only way to do this is to ban sunbeds completely. Please sign today and help save lives.
