Our Cancer Prevention Team

Cervical cancer awareness week 22-28th January

Every day 9 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the UK.  We know 75% of cervical cancers can be prevented by cervical screening but 1 in 4 women do not attend this potentially life-saving test.  Please get tested and encourage friends and people that matter to you to get tested too.

Cobalt and the Gloucestershire Hospital NHS Foundation Trust have jointly funded Megan Willsher a Teenage and Young Adult Cancer Nurse. Megan looks after young people aged 15-25 who have been diagnosed with cancer.  Sam Armstrong was supported by Megan when she diagnosed with cervical cancer.  Click here to read Sam’s story.

Sue and Aileen, our specialist Cancer Prevention Team, visit schools, colleges, businesses, social clubs and community groups within the Three Counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire, to discuss preventative measures and raise awareness of how early detection can improve outcomes. We provide these vital services completely free of charge.
