Worcestershire CCC offers skin cancer screening through healthcare partner Spire South Bank Hospital
02 October 2019
Spire South Bank has been working closely with Worcestershire County Cricket Club (WCCC) for many years and is proud to be their official Healthcare Partner for 2019/2020.
Players have been visiting South Bank for several years, many already use the advanced scanners in the Imaging Centre and some have been treated by orthopaedic consultants this year.
Fresh from their sterling performance in the TT20 Blast final, the team were offered post-season skin cancer screening with one of South Bank’s dermatology consultants Dr Philip Preston. Dr Preston checked the players' skin for moles whilst discussing sun protection strategies with the squad.
Dr Philip Preston, Consultant Dermatologist, said: “I am pleased to be doing a skin cancer screening session for the players and staff at Worcestershire County Cricket Club. The event gives the players a chance to check their skin and ask 'Howzat' mole, while discussing sensible sun protection strategies myself and my team of Specialist Nurses”.
Ben Davies, Head of Science and Medicine and Worcestershire County Cricket Club said “We are proud of our strong links with Spire South Bank Hospital, our players already use their imaging facilities and are looking to enhance the relationship. We have a shared vision of the importance of wellbeing of players and patients, the dermatology screening clinic by Dr Preston forms part of this.”
Tom Ryder, Spire South Bank Hospital Director said “Many of the WCCC players are already familiar with the warm welcome and quality of clinical service they receive from South Bank. We want to build on these foundations and are excited to be the WCCC Official Healthcare Partner, offering not only surgery but wellbeing services to keep our community healthy”.
