Cancer awareness campaign for anyone with potential signs and symptoms of cancer - The National Cancer Control Programme (NCCP) launched a campaign urging anyone with potential signs and symptoms of cancer to telephone their GP to check them out. The number of patients being referred to cancer diagnostic services has decreased since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic which is a cause of concern for the NCCP as it indicates that people with symptoms of cancer are delaying seeking medical advice. A video was developed urging people with signs and symptoms of cancer to telephone their GP and have them checked out.

Men and COVID-19’ Webinar - an invitation - The Engage National Men’s Health Training Programme partners have invited Alan White, Emeritus Professor of Men’s Health at Leeds Beckett University, to present insights into ‘Men and experience of COVID-19’.   The presentation will include current evidence and a Q&A afterwards.  To book a place, send an email to Colin Fowler at This email address is being protected from spambots.
