 201903 cancer awareness

Enfield Council is surveying residents to find out how aware they are of potential cancer symptoms. This will then help the council to inform residents in a better way about the symptoms to look out for and how to reduce the risk of cancer.

Spotting cancer early means treatment is more likely to be successful.

The project is being delivered through Enfield Council and Enfield Clinical Commissioning Group's Cancer Action Group, whose members include Cancer Research UK, Macmillan and the Public Health Team at Enfield Council.

To complete the survey visit enfield.gov.uk/CancerAware. The deadline for responding is 31st March.
