In the UK, about 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Prostate cancer isn’t linked to any clear preventable causes but risk does increase with age, ethnicity (black men) and family history.
We are working with our partners to improve the earlier identification of prostate cancer by raising awareness of prostate cancer risk factors and supporting rapid access to Prostate Specific Antigen Testing (PSA).
As part of the project, we are working with Surrey-based charity The Prostate Project to launch a mobile PSA clinic which will travel to targeted locations across our footprint.
A fundraising campaign to buy the mobile unit was launched in January 2022. You can read about the fundraising campaign here.
