We are here to support and enable both healthcare professionals and non-clinical staff to promote the breast awareness message. We provide patient information, materials for your waiting room and education resources for all staff to encourage the nation to start checking their chests.
We know healthcare professionals, particularly GPs and nurses, play an important role in diagnosing breast cancer early. They also have a great influence earlier on in the journey, encouraging healthy checking habits. Our research shows young women claim doctors have the most influence in encouraging non-checkers to start.
We want to make sure that all young people are informed about the importance of checking their boobs, chests, breasts and pecs. That is why we have designed the materials and resources below to help you to educate, encourage and empower your patients to start coppin’ a feel!
All of our healthcare information has the PIF TICK (Patient Information Forum), meaning that all of the health information is accredited and reviewed by healthcare professionals.
