NHS South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Cancer Alliance are working together with Cancer Research UK to deliver 'Talk Cancer Workshops' across South Yorkshire, with the first event taking place at The Unity Centre on St Leonards Road this week.

Dr Steph Edgar, GP and primary care lead at South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Cancer Alliance, said: “Through the Talk Cancer workshops, we want to give people who come into regular contact with the public the skills and confidence to have a conversation about cancer, signs and symptoms and when to get help.

“If you’re someone who’s able to promote health and wellbeing in your community, then the Talk Cancer training can benefit you.

“You don’t need to be a healthcare worker to discuss cancer and health.”

Following the first session in Rotherham, more workshops are planned for later in the year.
