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.
