Patient advocate and GP training lead, Nick York, will be on Sky News from 9.15am today talking about why GPs are being urged to do more blood tests - find out more by tuning in. We hope to share his clip later today.

At 2.30pm, the APPG on Blood Cancers will be holding a debate in Parliament on blood cancer care and will be launching a report afterwards. Our Director of Campaigns and Advocacy, Zack Pemberton-Whiteley will be in London for the debate and will be bringing us updates.

Today will be a big day for raising awareness of all blood cancers, including Leukaemias. Make sure everybody you know is aware of the common clusters of symptoms

Sky news is available on Freeview 233. I don’t subscribe to Sky.

I’m tuned in ready to watch.

And I’m on Freesat, so don’t get all the Freeview stuff, only some. Some disadvantages for living in the country! (Vastly outnumbered by the advantages, of course!)

I also live in the country in a village and overlook farmland so I guess I must be lucky to get Freeview where I am. Hope you'll be able to access it one day.

Good interview well done Nick

Good Interview Nick. Really enjoyed it and well spoken with good facts that I’m sure many people wouldn’t be aware of.

I am hoping Leukaemia Care will publish the interview.

Freeview jumps from 232 to 250 here - must be geographic are causing that. Tried a retune - made no difference. Hopefully will be on tinternet soon.
