Manchester NHS raises awareness on the radio

24 May 2012
The End of Life Care team at the Greater Manchester and Cheshire Cancer Network commissioned a series of radio commercials to raise awareness of the importance of expressing end of life wishes during Dying Matters Awareness Week.

Working in partnership with Guardian Media Group and Bauer Radio, the ads were aired during Dying Matters Awareness Week 2012, from 14-20 May. They were played on Smooth Radio, Real Radio, Real XS, Key 103 and Magic 1152 in the North West.

The teams manned the bus all day, talking to local residents about advance care planning and end of life issues, and providing information and support. The bus visited Bury, Manchester, Tameside and Bolton. Today, Friday 18 May, it will be at Asda, Trafford Park, from 10am-4pm.
