Can I still contact my GP during the coronavirus crisis if I'm having symptoms?

Posted on: Wednesday, 15th April 2020 by

“What do I do right now if I’m having symptoms? Can I still see my GP? Am I wasting their time?”

A lot has changed due to the coronavirus crisis, but some things stay the same - this includes your GP’s role. They’re your first point of contact for anything that is concerning you. You might have to contact them in a different way, with lots of appointments being carried out on video or the phone, but the outcome should be the same.

Living with lymphoedema

Posted on: Monday, 16th March 2020 by

Lymphoedema can affect people in different ways. In this blog, Nicola shares her experience. Nicola was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2008 when she was 27. In May, she had a hysterectomy and all her pelvic lymph nodes removed. She then had chemotherapy and pelvic radiotherapy after regaining some strength, about 3 months later. She has been cancer-free since her treatment 12 years ago, but still struggles with lymphoedema in her left leg.

World Cancer Day: “It just means so much to know you’re not alone”

Posted on: Tuesday, 4th February 2020 by

Today is World Cancer Day. This year, we’ve decided to talk about the importance of friendships, talking and support. 

How you go through a cancer diagnosis and treatment can be a very personal experience, it can also be isolating at times. It can be hard to find others who can relate to what you’re going through and how you’re feeling. 

To mark this World Cancer Day, we want to say you’re not alone and are sharing stories from our volunteers. We hear from Mandy, diagnosed with stage 1b1 in 2015 , Laura, diagnosed with stage 3 in 2017 and Hayley, diagnosed in 2017. 

Confused by the headlines this week?

Cervical Cancer Prevention Week - We know it isn't always easy

Posted on: Monday, 13th January 2020 by

If you’ve been diagnosed with cervical cancer, hearing that you have or have had a cancer that can be prevented can be difficult. I and Jo’s truly understand how this could be the case especially during campaign weeks such as Cervical Cancer Prevention Week when our messaging around prevention gets much louder. So I wanted to take the time ahead of next week to explain why the week is so important.
