Cancer event aimed at ethnic minorities in Warrington
2:40pm Tuesday 8th July 2014 in News
WARRINGTON Borough Council’s public health team is offering its support to ethnic minority cancer awareness month.
And the team will be on hand at an awareness event at Woolston Neighbourhood Hub tomorrow, Wednesday.
The session, organised by the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), will run alongside its AGM and offer information about cancer and the signs and symptoms to look out for as well as all the services available in the borough.
Clr Pat Wright, executive board member for health, wellbeing and adult services said: “There will be lots of information available at this event and the message is clear: if you notice any of the cancer signs and symptoms promoted please visit your GP straight away, the earlier we detect cancer the better your chance of survival.
“Cancer affects everyone in some way and we want to raise awareness of the signs, services and support that is available to the community.”
St Rocco’s Hospice and John Holt Cancer Support Foundation will be on hand and there will be more information about bowel, prostate and lung cancer and how to spot them.
The session runs from 3.30pm to 5.30pm at the Hall Road centre.
