After the success of previous years, we again embarked on a major publicity drive during the 5th awareness week 29th April to May 5th. This year we had excellent coverage with adverts in the Metro newspaper as well as on the Chronicle Live website, achieving a considerable number of 'hits'. BBC TV ran a story on the local news about oesophageal and gastric cancer in the region on the Thursday, featuring Professor Griffin and a few of our patients (thank you!!!), following a radio broadcast that morning on BBC Newcastle from Mr Immanuel and Claire Sedgwick. The outdoor poster campaign has again been displayed on the Metro transport system and the backs of buses.
Remember that we also have the sponsored Zipwire across the Tyne from the top of the BALTIC to Newcastle Quayside on Sunday 30th June 2013. Please contact Claire.Sedgwick@nuth.nhs.uk for further information. It promises to be a great fun-filled morning on the Quayside!
