Cancer Awareness Campaign

In May, a new local campaign is launching in Islington to encourage individuals who have symptoms that may be suggestive of cancer to contact their GP practice. Delivered by the North Central London Cancer Alliance in collaboration with the NCL Clinical Commissioning Group and council Public Health team, the campaign will also aim to increase the number of people taking part in screening when invited.

If you have any of the following symptoms:

Unexpected bleeding, like blood in your poo, pee or spit

Unexplained lump

Unexplained pain that lasts three weeks or more

Persistent cough that lasts three weeks or more

Unexplained weight loss

You should contact your GP practice to arrange a check.

It may be nothing serious – in fact more than 9 out of 10 people are not diagnosed with cancer.

However, finding cancer early makes it more treatable.

That’s why it’s also important to take part in routine cancer screening when invited.

The way you make an appointment may have changed, but your GP practice is open for check-ups and screenings and healthcare professionals are available to see you safely

When should you wash your hands?

You should wash your hands:

  • after using the toilet or changing a nappy
  • before and after handling raw foods like meat and vegetables
  • before eating or handling food
  • after blowing your nose, sneezing or coughing
  • before and after treating a cut or wound
  • after touching animals, including pets, their food and after cleaning their cages

Washing your hands properly removes dirt, viruses and bacteria to stop them spreading to other people and objects, which can spread illnesses such as food poisoning, flu or diarrhoea.

It can help stop people picking up infections and spreading them to others.

It can also help stop spreading infections when you’re visiting someone in hospital or another healthcare setting.
