Cancer and screening services at the practice

Please see the following link about the “Don’t worry and wait campaign”

We would urge you to call us if you are worried. It is much better to speak to you and then see you if needed. This hopefully will reassure you, but if we do feel something may be worrying, we can refer you and get a specialist opinion quickly.

As a practice we would also like to promote the cancer screening programmes below. Please follow the links to each one to get more information.

Bowel cancer screening- https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/bowel-cancer-screening/

Breast cancer screening – https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/breast-cancer-screening/

Cervical cancer screening – https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/cervical-screening/

 

 Lastly October is ‘Stoptober’ month and so we would really urge you to try to stop smoking if possible. Please see the following link for help: https://www.nhs.uk/better-health/quit-smoking/
