In Yorkshire, you’re more likely to get cancer and more likely to die from it than almost anywhere else in England. Cancer is related to many things such as our genes and age. But it’s also affected by our lifestyle - not looking after ourselves properly, not eating right, not being active enough or making good choices for our health.

Using research, we look more closely at these and other factors to find new and improved ways to help people improve their health and understand how they can have the best chance of avoiding cancer.  We test new ways to find cancer early, how best to treat it and how to support people to ensure they have the best chance of surviving and coping with their cancer.

Here are some of the ways we’re helping the people of Yorkshire.
