Cancer early diagnosis campaigns outlined

The Department of Health is continuing to implement a series of public awareness campaigns to support the government’s priority to achieve better cancer outcomes.

National cancer director Mike Richards has outlined the plans for the rest of 2012/13 – these include a further national bowel cancer awareness campaign that will run for 4 weeks from 28 August 2012. In a letter to trust chief executives he also provides some headlines on the results of the first national bowel cancer awareness campaign that ran from the end of January this year.
