PCA are hosting an awareness stand and attending a GP Meeting at Princess Royal University Hospital
On the 4th December there will be an awareness stand and GP meeting to discuss both pancreatic cancer and pancreatitis, in order to help improve the early detection of pancreatic disease and cancer in primary care.
The event will be an opportunity to highlight the risk factors of pancreatic cancer and to know how pancreatic cancer is managed in order to support patients through their illness.
