Tell the Government to #EndtheDelays in diagnosis for people with blood cancer
0 HAVE TAKEN ACTION SO FAR, WILL YOU JOIN THEM?
Thousands of people with blood cancer are having to go to their GP again and again because their symptoms aren’t being acted on fast enough.
‘My dad had classic blood cancer symptoms, spent 18 months seeing his GP and tragically died four days after diagnosis. I don’t want anyone else to be in this situation. GPs need more support to spot potential blood cancer symptoms’ - Diana
This is unacceptable
We are calling on the Government to end the injustice of people with blood cancer struggling to get a diagnosis.
GPs need more support to recognise blood cancer more quickly. We’re asking for a Government plan to ensure that GPs are:
- Using the NHS symptoms guidance
- Following up with patients who might have blood cancer
- Making regular referrals for more tests if symptoms don’t improve
Our voice is only as loud as the number of people we’re talking on behalf of.
Sign our petition to demand the Government commits to ending delays in blood cancer diagnosis, by giving GPs the support they urgently need.
With your help we can #EndtheDelays
