Orchid is the UK’s leading registered charity dedicated to supporting men and their families who are affected by male-specific cancers - prostate, testicular, and penile, has recently been commissioned by East London Health & Care Partnership to deliver the “North East London Prostate Cancer Population Awareness Programme” across 7 London boroughs which include Redbridge. This programme is primarily aimed at raising awareness of prostate cancer amongst men at greater risk. Furthermore, we aim to provide information and support to healthcare professionals in order to deliver patient satisfaction and help improve prostate cancer outcomes.

Over 47,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year in the UK and there are 11,287 deaths from this disease annually. By raising awareness of this disease and educating men and their loved ones we aim to make a real difference.

To find out more about the programme, please contact Julia.depetrillo@orchid-cancer.org.uk / 020 3745 7310
