Cancer Awareness Campaign

A new local campaign has launched in Barnet to encourage individuals who have symptoms that may be suggestive of cancer to contact their GP practice. Delivered by the North Central London Cancer Alliance in collaboration with the NCL Clinical Commissioning Group and council Public Health team. You should contact your GP practice to arrange a check if you have: unexpected bleeding, unexplained weight loss, unexplained lump, unexplained pain that lasts three weeks or a persistent cough. It may be nothing serious – in fact more than 9 out of 10 people are not diagnosed with cancer. However, finding cancer early makes it more treatable. That’s why it’s also important to take part in routine cancer screening when invited. The way you make an appointment may have changed, but your GP practice is open for check-ups and screenings and healthcare professionals are available to see you safely.
Vaccinations in Barnet and North Central London

The NHS are inviting people aged 30 or older to book a life-saving Covid vaccine. If you're in this group, a frontline health & social care worker, carer, have a learning disability, are at 'moderate' or 'high' risk to #COVID19, you can book online here or call 119.
