We recognise that there are particular challenges in the development and provision of cancer information and support for minority communities.

There may be challenges in identifying symptoms and understanding advice or guidance. Language barriers and cultural misunderstanding are equally a challenge to the healthcare professionals, but there are organisations that can help.

Macmillan Cancer Support have produced a useful guide on BME resources (751mb PDF). Please see the websites listed in the box on the right of this page which we hope will help both healthcare professionals, patients, families and carers.
