Bowel Cancer UK’s This is bowel cancer campaign

Bowel Cancer UK want a future where nobody dies of bowel cancer, but they can’t do it alone. Their new campaign calls on all political parties to urgently address the biggest challenges facing people affected by bowel cancer by bringing together the voices of everyone impacted by the disease.

Every 15 minutes in the UK somebody is diagnosed with bowel cancer and it doesn’t just impact the person diagnosed. It affects families, friends and colleagues, doctors and nurses, scientists and researchers. That’s millions of people right across the UK.

It’s time to make your voice heard. Will you pledge your support and share why you think it’s so important action is taken to improve treatment and care for everyone affected by bowel cancer?

Building a Healthier Wirral for all

Your local NHS organisations, along with Wirral Council, have formed the Healthy Wirral Partnership and will be working with front line staff and the public to make our local health and care services better and sustainable.

We all have a role to play in helping to build a ‘Healthy Wirral’. We’ve put together a short survey to find out about:
  • Your local community and voluntary groups and how people can benefit from them?
  • The services that are available to help you lead a healthy and active lifestyle?
  • Your family and friends – how could you encourage them to be more healthy?
  • How you or anyone you know could benefit from being more actively involved in your local neighbourhood?
