NHS Southampton Clinical Commissioning Group, Southampton City Council & Hampshire Constabulary have joined forces to protect vulnerable people with dementia.
Be Clear on Cancer is back with a respiratory symptoms campaign running across England. The campaign highlights that a cough for three weeks or more could be a sign of lung disease, including cancer and that if you get out of breath doing everyday things that you used to be able to do, like mowing the lawn, it could be sign of lung or heart disease, or even cancer.
While it may well be nothing serious, if you have either of these symptoms you should tell your doctor. Finding these conditions early makes them more treatable.

That’s the message from the NHS in Southampton this week as the city’s GPs support Cervical Screening Awareness Week.
Cervical cancer is preventable and treatable, but it starts with taking up the offer to be screened.
Cancer screening is proven to have reduced the number of cancer instances in the city but there are still a large number of the population not taking up the offer.
