As well as encouraging early assessment,  CARES is looking to support the next stage of the Cancer pathway – diagnosis.  To this end we are working alongside the East Lancashire Health Trust on projects designed to reduce waiting times and the accessibility of diagnostic resources. We plan to help raise funds for a new Endoscopy Unit at Burnley General Hospital.

The Endoscopy unit will allow in the region of an additional 5,000 sessions to be undertaken per year, helping to limit waiting times, diagnose more people and save more lives.
