Enfield Council want your help to increase cancer awareness in Enfield

Did you know that more than 9 in 10 bowel cancer patients will survive the disease for more than 5 years if diagnosed at the earliest stage?* Finding and treating cancer at an early stage is important – it saves lives.

Did you know that more than 90% of women diagnosed with breast cancer at the earliest stage survive their disease for at least 5 years?*

Finding and treating cancer at an early stage is important – it saves lives.

That is why Enfield Council want your help to increase cancer awareness in Enfield.

How do I get involved?

Enfield Council are calling for Enfield residents to help them develop a new cancer awareness campaign by:

  • sharing what you already know about the early signs and symptoms of cancer
  • sharing your ideas on the best ways to raise awareness of cancer in the future

Getting involved is easy and will only take 5-10 minutes. You can share your views via our online survey.

How will completing the survey help?

The results of the survey will help Enfield Council understand what Enfield residents already know about the early signs and symptoms of cancer. Knowing this will help them focus future cancer awareness campaigns on information about cancer that local people are less aware of, helping to increase awareness of cancer in Enfield.

By sharing where you would like to see and/or hear information about cancer in a local campaign, you are helping Enfield Council decide where and how its best to publicise future information about cancer. This will enable them to ensure the information reaches as many Enfield residents as possible.

Are any other organisations involved in the project?

Enfield Council are working alongside the Enfield Clinical Commissioning Group’s Cancer Action Group, whose members include Cancer Research UK and Macmillan.

What if I can’t complete the survey?

No problem – just give us a call on 020 8373 6283 and we can organise for you to complete the survey over the telephone or face to face.

What if I am part of a community group or organisation, and we all want to share our views?

We will be attending community events and running pop up stalls across the borough over the next few weeks and we would be delighted to come and talk to your group, give us a call – 020 8373 6283 or email info@healthwatchenfied.co.uk.
