Welcome to the Melanoma UK website. Melanoma UK is a patient support and advocacy group, set up in 2007. The group was set up in memory of Jon Herron, a young man from Larne in Northern Ireland who sadly passed away in May 2008. Initially the aim was to fund raise and raise awareness of melanoma. The group started off as Factor 50 and became Melanoma UK in 2013. We were founder members of the Government’s melanoma task force which was brought together by Sian James MP in 2010. Also stakeholders with NICE which means we are called upon to give evidence during appraisals of Melanoma treatments. Our aim is to provide support to as many melanoma patients and families as we possibly can.
If you are a melanoma patient or carer and need help or support, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are always here for you and will do our best to help. If you have any concerns about your treatment or if you’ve got questions that you haven’t asked during your appointments, let us know and we’ll do what we can.
