Cancer Signs and Symptoms During the Coronavirus Pandemic

If you notice any possible cancer symptoms, or any changes that are unusual for you, contact your doctor because early cancer diagnosis saves lives. Due to coronavirus, fewer people are contacting their doctor. Your local surgery is ready to help you safely. They can talk to you over the phone, or by video link, and can arrange for further tests. Whatever happens, tell your doctor if your symptoms get worse or don’t get better. Early diagnosis saves lives. Contact your GP now or go to for more information.

Government have announced we are moving into the delay phase of #COVID19. This means, if you have a new cough OR a high temperature (37.8 degrees or higher), but generally feel well, you do not need to contact anybody. You do need to self isolate for 7 days.

We expect the NHS to be exceptionally busy in the coming days and weeks. If you have serious symptoms that you cannot manage at home or persist longer than 7 days, please go to NHS 111 online, or call 111 if you cannot go online.
