Smart About Cancer
There are over 350,000 new cases of cancer in the UK every year, that’s nearly 1000 new cases per day (Cancer UK)
In the UK, we are behind countries like America and Australia, and may parts of Europe for our survival rates at 1 year and 5 years. This means we are not getting to our doctors early enough.
More awareness and understanding about the risk factors affecting cancer, and the signs and symptoms can save lives and improve early diagnosis and intervention in Cancer cases.
Our Cancer Updates are delivered by front-line GPs to your employees. We are passionate about working with you as an organisation to get your employees ‘Smart About Cancer’. We would be delighted to work with any ‘Cancer Champions’ in your organisation who are willing to share their story and inspire their colleagues.
