Worried about Cancer?

North Central London CCG would like to reassure you that if you are worried about any unusual symptoms you may be experiencing that could be cancer, the NHS is open for you so please do not hesitate to contact your doctor. 

You may be offered a telephone or video consultation instead of a face-to-face one, and you will only be asked to come to your GP practice or go to a hospital if it is safe to do so. Chances are it is nothing serious, but finding cancer early makes it more treatable. Please watch the video on the right or click below for more information.

Healthy Start

Pregnant women, women with a baby under one year old and children from six months old to their fourth birthday on Healthy Start will get green Healthy Start vitamin coupons. These will be sent to you, with your Healthy Start vouchers, every eight weeks. Healthy Start women’s vitamin tablets contain:

  • Folic acid (reduces the chance of your baby having spina bifida, a birth defect where the spine doesn’t form properly)
  • Vitamin C (helps maintain healthy tissue in the body)
  • Vitamin D (helps your body to absorb calcium and so supports your baby’s bones to develop properly).

Healthy Start children’s vitamins contain

  • Vitamin A (for growth, vision in dim light and healthy skin),
  • Vitamin C (helps maintain healthy tissue in the body), Vitamin D (for strong bones and teeth).
  • More information on Healthy Start vitamins can be found on the Healthy Start website, or call Claire Wass, Public Health Officer on 020 8489 1031. You can pick up an application form and get your healthy start vitamins from any of the children’s centres and participating pharmacies which can be found on by clicking this link
