Cancer Focus NI - Well Aware

The Cancer Focus NI Well Aware service is aimed at the over 60s and is offered in a range of venues such as supported living schemes, residential homes and community groups right across Northern Ireland.

Well Aware sessions focus on raising your awareness of cancer and important signs and symptoms of the disease. They include free health checks which are carried out by an experienced nurse and, in some cases, may result in a referral to your GP.

The service aims to empower you to take control of your own health and to feel confident about going to the doctor if you have any concerns about cancer.
