East Cheshire NHS Trust is supporting the Department of Health’s Lung Cancer Awareness Campaign ‘Been coughing for 3 weeks? Tell your doctor.’
Lung cancer claimed around 99 lives in Eastern Cheshire in 2012, and 148 people were diagnosed in the same time period. This makes it one of the area’s biggest causes of death.

A number of updates have been made to the East Cheshire Health Unison website, which covers staff at East Cheshire NHS Trust.
The first addition includes information about welfare services for members and their families suffering hardship, particularly relevant to staff with long term sickness or a sudden change in circumstances, such as a family bereavement.
The second item is a prize draw for new members and for those who update their details with the branch. The prize is a Nexus 7 tablet and the draw takes place on Tuesday, 8 October, 2013.
