Be Cancer Safe -
North Derbyshire

Be Cancer Safe is a community approach to improving cancer survival in our area. We want everyone in North Derbyshire to know about the signs and symptoms of cancer and what screening is available to them. Our aim is to spread the
Be Cancer Safe message as far as we can by using social media and delivering 'Information Sessions' to local organisations and businesses. We will then ask those people we speak with to pledge to champion the Be Cancer Safe message in their own communities. 

What is the Be Cancer Safe message? 

Why is Be Cancer Safe important in
North Derbyshire?

More people in our region are diagnosed with cancer than the England average and we know that catching cancers at an earlier stage greatly increases the chance of survival. Our aim is to make sure that as many people as possible are aware of the signs and symptoms of cancer and know what screening is available to them. This will increase the number of people who are diagnosed at an earlier stage. 

Be Cancer Safe is also being delivered in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw. To find out more about the project delivery in these areas please click here

How can I get involved?

We are keen to hear from anyone who is interested in championing the cancer awareness message, including members of the public, community groups, organisations with paid staff and local press.
