Colin Beattie MSP is backing Prostate Cancer UK’s Men United v Prostate Cancer campaign, which uses the language of sport to engage men in the battle against the disease.
The member for Midlothian North and Musselburgh signed up over a game of table football with staff and volunteers at the charity’s conference exhibition stand.
He said: “Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and is predicted to be the most common cancer overall by 2030.
“Despite this, we know that the quality of care and support men with the condition receive varies throughout Scotland.
“To address this, I have previously called on NHS Boards to implement Prostate Cancer UK’s excellent Quality Checklist and now reiterate that call.
“I am delighted to sign for Men United v Prostate Cancer.
“It’s a big ask, but, working together, I know we can win this.”
