People living in Keighley are encouraging residents to come forward and get checked if they have any symptoms of cancer in a campaign featured in different languages.

In Keighley and the surrounding areas 4,000 people are living with cancer. A series of videos have been created by Keighley and Worth Valley Community Partnership, part of Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership. They are voiced by some people who have had cancer themselves or have been directly affected – some having lost family or friends to the disease.

The videos are available in English, Urdu, Slovak, Bangla and Polish, and the message is simple: ‘If in doubt, get checked out’. The first video in Slovak can be watched on Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership YouTube channel.

David Thompson, a General Practitioner (GP) from Ling House Medical Centre, Keighley, said: “If you’ve noticed anything different or something that won’t go away contact your GP practice. Not all symptoms are serious and it may be nothing to worry about.

The videos will be formally released on the dates below:
