Be Clear on Cancer
A local ovarian cancer symptoms awareness pilot campaign as part of Be Clear on Cancer took place across six regions in England in 2013. This was followed by a regional pilot campaign in the North West of England in early 2014. Target Ovarian Cancer worked closely with Public Health England, the Department of Health, NHS England, and Cancer Research UK in ensuring these were successful. Please join our campaign for a national symptoms awareness campaign to take place as soon as possible. You can also download Be Clear on Cancer resources for GPs.
