Breast cancer

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK and there are over 150 cases diagnosed each day.

The good news is with advances in medicine, screening and education, over 75% of women who are diagnosed will survive for over 10 years.

This page is currently under development and we will be continuing to build on the content in the coming months.

On this page you will find out; how the police service is supporting individuals nationally, what to expect if you have been diagnosed, advice for supervisors and leaders, individual stories and signposts to national charities and support lines. 

Catherine Pritchard from Cheshire Constabulary is working with Oscar Kilo to scale up support for all types of cancer nationally across policing.

Catherine was diagnosed with breast cancer and following surgery has successfully come through the experience. She is looking to create a national working group which will develop guidance and support ensuring individuals who receive a diagnosis are treated equally across the country.
