✅ Yes. Whilst general advise is to stay away from GP surgeries & A&E during Covid-19 outbreak, it is still important for you to present to your GP if you think you have symptoms of a cancer. 👍 Spotting cancer early means treatment is more likely to be successful.

Showing symptoms? stay at home for SEVEN days. If you live with other people they should stay home for FOURTEEN days from the day the first person showed symptoms. After 14 days, those who do not have symptoms, can come out of self-isolation. ➡️ NHS💻

Being strong isn’t about running marathons, climbing mountains or going to the gym. It’s about facing daily life, dealing with situations & showing that you are doing your very best. Send us a one-liner to help motivate others within the stoma & pouch community.
