As part of the Muslim Network Collaboration’s push for more culturally sensitive cancer screening programmes, the Network met with Professor Sir Mike Richards who is leading on a major overhaul of cancer screening as part of the NHS Long Term Plan’s renewed drive to improve care and save lives.

On the back of this meeting Sir Mike Richards has asked for those involved with cancer screening uptake or consultations in Muslim communities to share their learnings with him at He is “genuinely keen” on hearing about barriers in the Muslim community and this would help drive the findings from the review.

The Network would highly encourage all to participate in this call for evidence and share best practice. Further information on this review can be found here.
