Sunbed ban to become law

We are delighted that the Sunbeds Bill has passed through the Lords!

BMA Cymru would like to thank Julie Morgan MP for highlighting this important issue, and for the hard work which has gone into making this law.

Doctors have been concerned for some time about the effects that exposure to harmful UV rays can cause.

Younger skin is especially sensitive to ultraviolet light, and just one day of burning as a child increases the risk of getting skin cancer as an adult.

This legislation will protect vulnerable young people, and have a positive effect on the health of the people of Wales.

We will continue to work with the Welsh Assembly Government over the coming months as the regulations are drawn up.
