  • Be Cancer Aware & Screening
    • Early cancer diagnosis often leads to easier treatments and improves your chances of survival, it's therefore important to be cancer aware and learn about the signs and symptoms to look for.  ​

    • The national cancer screening programme helps to detect cancers early or even before they start, giving you a much better chance of successful treatment.  Check that you and your loved ones know which types of screenings are available to them and when to attend. 

  • COVID-19
    • If you are immunosuppressed ​due to cancer on another reason, please use our vaccination pages to find the latest vaccination guidance and clinic locations in west Essex.
