SAVING MORE LIVES THROUGH EARLY ASSESSMENT AND DIAGNOSIS

CARES supports the people of East Lancashire by raising awareness about early diagnosis.
To do this we require vital funds to support people, promote early detection and save lives.

OUR CORE AIMS ARE

EARLY ASSESSMENT CENTRE

Our drop-in centre in the heart of Burnley

We run FREE sessions for local people to attend offering advise from a registered Nurse about symptoms, early diagnosis and support.

DIAGNOSIS

We are looking to support the next stage of the Cancer pathway – Diagnosis.

We are working alongside the East Lancashire Health Trust on projects designed to reduce assessment waiting times and the accessibility or diagnostic resources.

BURNLEY ENDOSCOPY UNIT

With your help, we’re raising funds for an additional £400,000 Endoscopy Unit at Burnley General Hospital.
