Prostate cancer community clinic

 

To confront the uncomfortable reality of prostate cancer
amongst black and African-Caribbean men. 

The launch of 'Hear Me Now - One Year On' in the House of Commons with a series of recommendations for local and national government, was followed by a round table meeting chaired by NHS England Clinical Director, to drive national action.  Local Task & Finish Groups were formed to drive local action in key areas of London, Birmingham, Nottingham and Leeds. This involved 20 target authorities:

London

  • Barking and Dagenham
  • Bexley
  • Croydon
  • Enfield
  • Greenwich
  • Hackney
  • Hammersmith and Fulham
  • Haringey
  • Islington
  • Lambeth
  • Lewisham
  • Newham
  • Southwark
  • Tower Hamlets
  • Waltham Forest

UK

  • Birmingham
  • Manchester
  • Leeds
  • Nottingham
  • Wolverhampton

Recommended Areas of Action

National

  • Refresh Prostate Cancer Risk Management Programme guidance
  • Recommended PSA-test age to be lowered for Black African Caribbean  men

Local

  • Prostate cancer included in Joint Strategic Needs Assessments
  • Additional Community-based Prostate Cancer Services.

As a campaign initiative, Nottingham City CCG was approached to highlight the concerns of the local Black African and Black Caribbean Community in relation to prostate cancer. A proposal was submitted to Nottingham CCG by BMECC after initial meetings in January 2015. The CCG subsequently agreed to pilot a local service for 18 months, which was to run from 25th April 2016 – October 2017. This led to the first community drop-in clinic  called Check Tings Out
