Lincolnshire NHS big 7Tea
To help honour the NHS turning 70 this year, many organisations will be helping to celebrate with a cup of tea and possibly a slice of cake.
But this will be more than just a regular brew. On and around 5th July, people up and down the country will get together to raise a cuppa to our beloved NHS and raise funds for NHS charities. As part of the NHS Big 7Tea you can invite your friends round for a cuppa, brew up for your family, crack open the staff room tea bags, or commandeer the local village hall. You could raise money for your local NHS charity helping your local hospital, community services or mental health teams.
“Cervical cancer is the most common cancer in women under 35. Sadly Over 3,200 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and 890 women lose their lives every year. Cervical cancer is not thought to be hereditary. In 99.7% of cases, cervical cancers are caused by persistent infections with a virus called high-risk Human papilloma virus. The good news is Cervical screening can prevent up to 75 per cent of cervical cancers from developing . Of course, the faster something is detected, the better the outlook can be.
It's Cervical Screening Awareness Week, 11 – 17 June 2018 and South Lincolnshire CCG is reminding people that cervical cancer can kill, yet regular screening helps save thousands of lives every year.
South Lincolnshire CCG has added its support to Men’s Health Week, which this year takes place between 11 – 17 June and will focus on men and diabetes.

PPG Awareness Week takes place from 4 – 9 June, and aims to promote the role and benefit of PPGs (Patient Participation Groups) to patients, the public and health professionals.
