Your GP wants to hear from you regarding cancer

25 June, 2020

‘Cancer should not be the forgotten ‘C’ in this pandemic’

• AS Macmillan GPs working across London we are very concerned by indications that the number of people contacting their doctor about possible cancer symptoms has significantly declined in the last few weeks – something we are seeing in our own practices and hearing from colleagues.

Cancer presents in many ways and hasn’t stopped because of Covid-19.

That’s why we are urging Londoners to get in touch with their GP immediately if they experience common symptoms of cancer including changes to their body, unexplained weight loss or loss of appetite, lumps or bleeding, coughs or new, unexplained pain anywhere in your body which doesn’t go away after three weeks.

Surgeries are now offering appointments over the phone, or virtually, which can be accessed easily and securely.

Your GP wants to hear from you. We are determined that cancer should not be the forgotten “C” in this pandemic.
