RedbridgeCVS, the umbrella body for charities and community groups, is holding a series of webinars to encourage people to learn more about cancer symptoms and how to get screened.

The three sessions throughout October will explain what you can do to prevent cancer, why you should attend screenings and how you can recognise the signs and symptoms of common cancers.

The online discussions are hosted by health professionals including GPs and are open to anyone who lives or works in Redbridge, Barking and Dagenham and Havering.

The next session is on Tuesday, October 13 at 10am and is specifically around breast and lung cancer.
