Be Clear on Cancer Blood in Pee campaign launching

Be Clear on Cancer Blood in Pee campaign launching

July 9, 2018

Public Health England (PHE) has announced its latest national campaign to raise awareness of ‘blood in pee’ as a symptom of bladder and kidney cancers. The campaign will run from 19th July to 23rd September 2018 and pharmacy teams can now pre-order the materials free of charge from the Campaign Resource Centre to support the campaign.

The primary audience for the campaign is men and women over 50 years from lower socio-economic groups, and the main message for the public is: If you notice blood in your pee, even if it’s ‘just the once’, tell your doctor. 

The campaign is part of the Be Clear on Cancer series, which aims to improve early diagnosis of cancer by raising awareness of the signs and/or symptoms of cancer, and to encourage people to visit their GP without delay.
