Nurses at a health roadshow in Glasgow will be offering free cancer advice.

Cancer Research UK nurses Jess Cuddy and Laura Conaghan will be at Tesco Shettleston, Annick Street on Tuesday, April 30 from 10am to 4pm where they will share tips on how to spot cancer early and how to reduce its risk.

They will return to the same location on July 3, September 4 and October 30 with visits planned across the year to venues including Tesco Silverburn, Rutherglen Exchange Shopping Centre, Forge Shopping Centre and The Foundry Barrhead.

Ms Cuddy, senior cancer awareness nurse at Cancer Research UK, said: “We’re here to help in areas that need us most and we are looking forward to talking to lots of people across Glasgow about the steps they can take to help reduce their risk of cancer.

“By returning to the city across the year we are able to provide ongoing support, and people we’ve met can come back and let us know how they’re getting on or ask for further help and signposting.”

Ms Cuddy said: "If you smoke, stopping is the best thing you can do for your health.

"Talk to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist, or call Quit Your Way Scotland, an advice and support service for anyone trying to stop smoking in Scotland.

"You can contact Quit Your Way Scotland free on 0800 84 84 84 to find out what will work for you.” 

The roadshow is supported by the Marie Keating Foundation which was set up by Irish singer and presenter Ronan Keating and his family in memory of their mum Marie who died from breast cancer.

Mr Keating said: “Just like many families we know first-hand the impact of losing a loved one to cancer.

"We wanted to do something positive to help people understand more about cancer and the small changes they can make to reduce the risk of cancer. “My family and I are very proud to support the Cancer Research UK Cancer Awareness Roadshow and we think our mum would be pleased with the work we are doing.”

The roadshow schedule is subject to change.
