'Talking about Cancer' with Star Radio!

Tune into Star Radio this month to learn more about cervical cancer and what you can do to prevent it.

In the UK, cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in women under 35 (after breast cancer). About 2,800 women a year are diagnosed with cervical cancer.

To help raise awareness of cervical cancer and the NHS cervical screening programme, we have teamed up with Star Radio.

Listen out for a series of adverts over the next few weeks as Star speaks to some of our Talking About Cancer Team and follows one lady as she goes for a cervical smear test.

You can find out more about the campaign by visiting:

Or for further advice, ring our Talking About Cancer Team on the Freephone number: 0800 783 4056 or e-mail:

'In recent times, I have utilised admissions to Richardson for respite direct from my fracture clinic, even at weekends. I have never worked anywhere with this efficiency before - it is reassuring and invaluable for the patient.'
