It includes a section on what to ask your doctor, where to go for further information and a glossary to explain many of the terms used.

It is estimated that by 2030, there will be more than a million people of working age living with cancer in the UK according to Cancer Research. It has never been more vital to raise awareness of cancer in the workplace amongst workers and employers.

A cancer diagnosis can have a real effect on a business, presenting challenges across the board, particularly to management teams. It’s so important that companies are prepared when it comes to supporting and being proactive in raising awareness of cancer in the workplace. This will help improve early diagnosis, which for some cancers, such as pancreatic cancer, can be the only hope for survival as it allows for surgery. 

That’s why Pancreatic Cancer Action is pleased to be offering support to businesses and social groups looking to raise awareness of this horrible disease within their workplace or group.  

Book a workplace webinar

We can either arrange to host a talk in person, predominantly held by our founder and 14-year survivor Ali Stunt, who speaks from her own personal experiences and encourages audience engagement by using ‘clickers’. As well as virtually via live webinars and Q&A sessions, and pre-recorded by Dr Hilary Jones (on-demand).

Once held, the video can be emailed to colleagues or placed on the company’s intranet, along with awareness material in both print and digital format.  

100% of people who attended a talk felt that it was worth their time!
