If you’ve had a cough for three weeks and it isn’t COVID-19, it could be a sign of cancer. It’s probably nothing serious but, if it is cancer, then finding it early makes it more treatable. Your NHS is here to see you, safely. Please contact your GP practice.
Cheshire & Merseyside Cancer Alliance and NHS organisations across the region are encouraging women who receive an invitation to attend a breast cancer appointment, to act on it as soon as they can.
Women who are registered with a GP, and aged 50-74 are sent invitations to attend breast cancer screening appointments every three years.
And doctors across the region are strongly encouraging everyone that is asked to attend a breast cancer screening appointment to act quickly on their invitation.
Hospitals, GP surgeries and mobile screening units across Cheshire & Merseyside have put measures in place to keep people safe during their appointments, including dedicated ‘COVID-secure’ facilities. Social distancing and rigorous precautions are in place, alongside extra cleaning regimes.
The Lymphoma Action Group is for anyone affected by lymphoma or any other blood cancer.
Meetings were being held on the first Wednesday of alternate months from 12-1.30pm at Stapeley Community Hall, Pear Tree Field, Nantwich CW5 7GE.
Sadly, during the COVID-19 pandemic we are not able to run our usual face-to-face events.
However, we are developing a series of online services and support to keep you connected during this challenging time, for example this webinar recording.
We also have Online Support Meetings on Zoom (but you don’t need to install Zoom). In Cheshire these are on the 4th Thursday of the month at 2pm.
PLEASE REGISTER HERE for these support meetings.
