At Pancreatic Cancer Action, our goal is to ensure that more patients are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at an early stage so that they have the best chance of survival. We know that raising awareness of pancreatic cancer and its signs and symptoms can save lives.
One way we aim to achieve this goal is by raising awareness amongst the medical community, more specifically: GPs and pharmacists.
As well as targeting these groups directly, we also rely on our fantastic supporters to help spread the word and let their GPs, doctors and pharmacists know about the work we do. Here’s how you can help us…
Help us raise awareness with GPs
You can help us to achieve this by talking to your local GP practice about pancreatic cancer and by letting them know about our free e-learning module for GPs. We can provide materials to help you do this.

Help us raise awareness with Pharmacists
One of PCA’s key objectives is to offer free education to primary care professionals.
We believe that pharmacies, pharmacists, and their support teams are key in helping us achieve this goal by identifying key symptoms by the medicines prescribed and bought over the counter. Pharmacy is well placed to spot potential signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer and therefore plays a crucial role in aiding early diagnosis, which can significantly improve a patient’s chance of survival.’
