Skin & Cancer Centre OpeningApril 23, 2014
Ego’s Managing Director, Alan Oppenheim, recently attended the opening of the Skin & Cancer Foundation’s New Day Procedure Centre and organisation that Ego has been a proud supporter for many years.
The New Day Procedure facilities will enable the foundation to provide an extra 25,600 treatments (inclusive of an extra 6,000 treatments for skin cancer patients) each year, allowing more people to access the foundation’s clinical expertise, training and care.
Victorian Minister for Health Hon David Davis MLC, opened the facility with a speech saying that the government is very concerned about the impact of skin cancers on Victorians.
“A recent report showed a 10 per cent decline in the incidences of non-melanoma skin cancer in Australians aged 45 or less. Last year we saw five year cancer survival rates increase to a record high of 66 per cent. This reflects ongoing investment in research, treatment and significant uptake of preventative screening” said Mr Davis.
After his speech, Mr Davis declared the centre officially open.
QV Gentle Wash 1.25L and QV Skin Lotion 1.25L are available from Chemist Warehouse.
