HeadSmart: be brain tumour aware

The Brain Tumour Charity’s HeadSmart campaign raises awareness of the signs and symptoms of childhood brain tumours by spreading the word to healthcare professionals and the public.

HeadSmart has already brought down the average time it takes to diagnose a childhood brain tumour from over three months to six and a half weeks, saving lives and reducing long-term disabilities. The campaign’s goal is to bring down average diagnosis times to five weeks or less to be on a par with the best in the world.

You can download a free mobile symptoms guide by texting SMART to 81400 or find out more about HeadSmart: www.headsmart.org.uk
