New Patient Video: Worried about cancer symptoms during the coronavirus pandemic?

Now Available in 12 Languages – Please Share Widely / Upload to GP Practice Websites

Last year North Central London CCG produced a short video aimed at encouraging members of the public to come forward if they have any concerns about potential cancer symptoms and to provide some reassurance that if asked to attend a GP practice or hospital that it is safe to do so.

During the COVID pandemic, we have noticed that not as many people are seeking help and advice from their doctor about any unusual symptoms they might be experiencing that could be cancer and this has led to 16% fewer two week wait referrals (April 2020 to February 2021) across North Central London (NCL) since the start of the pandemic.

The Video is titled Worried about cancer symptoms during the coronavirus pandemic?

As part of enabling this video and message to be shared to a wider audience and reach communities where English is not their first language, we have now translated the video into 12 common languages spoken in London.

All 12 videos are available to view on the My Health section on the NCL CCG Website, with direct links to individual videos below.

Please do share this widely through your usual communication channels and we ask GPs to also upload to their own practice website if possible.
