As part of Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, the Cancer Alliance is asking all its stakeholders to disseminate the information below to relevant colleagues and wider networks. Raising awareness, uptake and addressing inequalities in access to and experience of screening, is a key priority for the Thames Valley Cancer Alliance, both in the promotion of early diagnosis and improved patient experience.
In the UK, women with learning disabilities are the least likely to attend breast screening.
Join the campaign throughout October 2017 in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month to help raise awareness and uptake.
20th October is Breast Cancer Now’s “Wear it pink” day. More information can be found at http://breastcancernow.org/get-involved/fundraise-for-us/take-part-in-a-fundraising-event/wear-it-pink .
