Cancer

One in two of us will get cancer in our lifetime, leaving us scared, shocked and numb.

Working together, the NHS and councils across Coventry and Warwickshire are committed to improving cancer care services for the local population.

We are determined to help prevent cancer by supporting people to live happy and healthy lives, detect cancers more quickly and have access to better treatments.

The impact of COVID

We had to change some of our cancer services during the pandemic.

People living with cancer had to be protected and so we paused or moved some treatments to other hospitals and facilities. 

During lockdown less people were seeing their local doctor. As a result, this may impact on the number of people finding their cancer early, when it is most treatable.

We need to reverse this.

Your hospital is safe

If you are worried or think you may have cancer, you must contact your GP. Equally, if you have a hospital appointment it is really important you turn up. It might save your life.
 


 
Your local hospitals have made sure treatment areas are safe from COVID-19. Some patients will be asked to visit independent hospitals for treatment, to reduce the risk of COVID-19.

We are all working hard to make sure you continue to receive high quality care.
 

Living healthy

By living a healthy life we can all reduce our risk of getting cancer.

We can support you to eat better, get active and stop smoking.

By making small changes we can all live longer and happy lives.
