As a practice we saw a large drop off in potential cancer referrals in April, May and June from the normal levels. We would urge you to call us on 0117 986 2343 if you are worried. It is much better to speak to you and then see you if needed. This hopefully will reassure you, but if we do feel something may be worrying, we can refer you and get a specialist opinion quickly.
As a practice we would also like to promote the cancer screening programmes below. Please follow the links to each one to get more information.
- Bowel cancer screening- www.nhs.uk – Bowel cancer screening
- Breast cancer screening – www.nhs.uk – Breast cancer screening
- Cervical cancer screening – www.nhs.uk – Cervical screening
Lastly, October is ‘Stoptober’ month and so we would really urge you to try to stop smoking if possible. Please see the following link for help: www.nhs.uk – Quit smoking.
