We’re here to tell you about the five national health screening programmes – AAA, bowel, breast, cervical, and NHS Health Checks.
Just got your screening letter and have questions? We know that understanding more about screening makes people feel better about going. Here you can find out what your screening is looking for, and what it involves.
Not sure if you can get screened? You can find out who’s eligible, and what to do if you haven’t been contacted or missed your appointment.
We know that lots of people don’t go for their screening when they’re invited. They might be too busy, embarrassed, or scared it’ll hurt. But research shows that screening can, and does, save people’s lives. It can detect a problem early, before you have any symptoms. And finding out about a problem early can mean that treatment is more effective.
We want people to get to know their body and start looking out for the signs and symptoms, know what to look for, and get support and help early if they notice any changes.
Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer; it affects 1 in 2 people at some point in their lives. Through the Reduce Your Risk campaign, we want to spread the message that there are things which can be done to prevent cancer. We know you can’t control everything, but a lot of people are surprised by how much our lifestyle choices impact on our risk of developing cancer and long-term conditions.
The campaign aims to provide you with support and information about how to make lifestyle changes to protect you and your family.
🌟Cannot stress enough how important it is to get your cervical screening, cervical cancer rates have gone up by a scary 54% in 25-29 year olds!!!
A simple short appointment can literally save your life!!!
Also important to stress the fact that cervical screening detects cervical cancer but as I was not aware doesn’t detect womb cancer, as many of you already know I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of it just over a year ago and was lucky that I had caught it early, only because I acted on a very slight symptom, please get checked if anything out of the normal and please girls have your cervical screening done make that appointment it’s so important!!!!
