HP cancer screening

EMPLOYEES at HP Ireland, together with Aviva Health Insurance Ireland, will be offered on-site free skin cancer screening.

The scheme was launched by rugby pundit Brent Pope, above, and will be available throughout June and July across the four Irish HP sites.

Moles will be checked on-site by the specialist GP team, Dr Tony O'Sullivan and Dr Mukesh Lalloo, who specialise in skin surgery.

More than 8,000 new cases are diagnosed in Ireland every year and there is no national screening programme for skin cancer in Ireland.
