What is Be Cancer Safe all about?
Be Cancer Safe is a community approach to improving cancer survival in our area. We want everyone in North Derbyshire to be aware of the early signs and symptoms of cancer and to know what screening is available to them. We’re asking members of the public to actively encourage their friends and family to visit the GP if they notice an unusual change to their bodies, and to attend screening when invited. A simple conversation about cancer could save someone’s life!
What is the Be Cancer Safe message?
Why is Be Cancer Safe important in
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.
