Lung cancer pharmacy campaign

The lung cancer pharmacy campaign is a project working with community pharmacies to encourage people to visit their GPs if they are displaying the common symptoms of lung cancer such as a persistent cough, breathlessness or unexplained weight loss.

We have created a number of posters for pharmacies to display to encourage people to come in and speak to a pharmacist about their cough and other symptoms. Alongside this, we have also created a patient leaflet with more information about what to look out for and what to do.

We have 85 pharmacies from across Tower Hamlets, Barking and Dagenham, Waltham Forest, Redbridge and Newham, that have signed up.

Results from the campaign will be available in autumn 2023.
