Be Clear on Cancer Campaigns
Be Clear on Cancer is a Public Health England initiative to raise awareness of the importance of an early diagnosis of cancer and to encourage people to see their GP sooner. The programme is delivered in partnership with NHS England, Department of Health and Cancer Research UK with input from clinical and academic partners.
Be Clear on Cancer was developed to target bowel, lung, breast, blood in urine (as a symptom of bladder and kidney cancer), oesophago-gastric and ovarian cancers and includes resources in audio and sign language. An additional breast cancer campaign specifically for women over 70 years and a cancer symptoms campaign called ‘Know 4 sure’ have also been developed.
