Specialist nurses in Lancashire have been raising awareness of the importance of oral health, as part of Mouth Cancer Week, which ended last week.

Eric Hughes (pictured left), Macmillan head and neck clinical nurse specialist at Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, helped organise roadshows at the trust’s five hospitals, providing patients with free mouth checks and information leaflets.
