Help us find the missing men: prostate cancer referrals fall by 52,000 due to COVID-19

The Chestnut Appeal for Men’s Health supports Prostate Cancer UK in the drive to help find the missing men of the pandemic and encourage men to speak to their local surgeries about getting a PSA Blood Test.   We are also holding a PSA Blood Testing event on March 24th, where booking is essential.

To book your FREE test just email chestnut.appeal@nhs.net  

The pandemic has made it more difficult for men to approach their GPs over the last year. The latest data shows that since March 2020, urgent referrals by GPs in England have dropped by over 52,000. As a result, more than 8,600 fewer men in England started treatment for prostate cancer in 2020 than in the previous year. This pattern is expected to be reflected across the UK once data is released.

The event is fully funded by the charity The Chestnut Appeal for Men’s Health.
