Our Cancer Prevention Team

Over 40% of cancers could be prevented, by leading a healthy lifestyle, not smoking, choosing a balanced diet, taking regular exercise and reducing alcohol intake.

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.

If you would like to arrange a visit from our friendly Cancer Prevention Team, please email sue.white@cobalthealth.co.uk

The National Be Clear on Cancer Campaign

The National Be Clear on Cancer Campaign is aimed at men and women aged 50 and over as they are most at risk of lung cancer, other lung diseases and heart disease.

Symptoms to get checked:

a persistent cough (lasting more than 3 weeks)
getting out of breath while doing everyday tasks such as vacuuming

People don’t always realise the significance of their symptoms and may dismiss them as an inevitable part of ageing or their lifestyle. Getting symptoms checked straight away, means people are more likely to be diagnosed earlier and treated successfully.
