Obesity and cancer: Information for Health Professionals
Support our obesity awareness campaign
Live 26th February – 25th March.
We’re running a national campaign to raise awareness of the link between cancer and obesity.
Obesity is the second biggest preventable cause of cancer in the UK but research shows that only 15% of the public are aware of the link.
Talking to patients about their weight can be difficult but a recent survey found that 93% of patients feel comfortable discussing their weight with a health professional (CRUK Panel Survey, 2016).
Here you’ll find useful information and practical resources to support your patient conversations.
