Worried about cancer?


If you have signs or symptoms that could suggest cancer, it is important you seek medical advice.

Please contact your GP surgery directly. You can telephone, or you can go to your surgery’s website to complete an online form via e-Consult. Your GP surgery may offer you an online consultation, so you do not have to go to the surgery unnecessarily.
