Noticeboard

Mental health awareness week starts every year on the second Monday in May – in 2019 from 13 – 19 May.

In a world that is increasingly opening up to – and understanding those with – mental health issues, it’s no surprise that Mental Health Awareness Week is now a firmer fixture on calendars around the UK and beyond. It’s organised by the Mental Health Foundation, and focuses on a major issue each and every year.

Cancer in Salford

Cancer is a common condition. Doctors predict that almost half of us will get some type of cancer during our lifetime. In Salford, over 1,000 people are diagnosed with cancer every year.

Spotting the signs and getting diagnosed early can make all the difference. The sooner cancer is detected, the better the chances of successful treatment. It’s important for you to know what to look out for and what you can do to reduce your risk of developing cancer.
