Cancer does not go away just because of Covid. The NHS are doing an amazing job but please don’t forget other diseases are still killers......

ALL testing for cancer should be continued....lives WILL be saved through early testing. Get our local GP's to do it, after all they are NOT seeing any patients at the moment, its all telephone or video links for them so they have the time and the room available.

I had trouble with abnormal cells found after a smear this test is vital for saving lives and no such tests should have to be stopped due to any pandemic now or in the future.

Last lock down I got told I had cancer, it took a massive strain on myself and my family. But we got through it even though it was hard with all my appointments ect. I was lucky to have them. I can’t even think of what those who get told they have/might have cancer are going through if there is no one to turn to or appointments! This is a matter of life and death and needs to stay open! Lucky I am cancer free but I’m now a high risk and will need watching closely. Open it up even if they had to go in alone as it can be done I had to . Here if anyone needs to talk

Smear tests, and all similar tests, are vital for ensuring that any treatment needed is given promptly. If these tests are not carried out, and/or they are suspended (even for reasons which may seem, or even be, valid), this can obviously cause complications in the individual's condition, and therefore more serious treatment. I personally attended all my smears (and mammograms) and had no complications; in contrast, I felt unable to do the bowel screening, and, possibly as a result, contracted cancer and underwent surgery and a fortnight's stay in hospital; I am now unable to defecate normally, and need to use various pieces of equipment provided by the N.H.S.
