This video has been made by North Wales Police following two years of testing within their force. We have worked very closely with Maria Hughes who is Corporate Head of Medical Services. This video is the real life story of Neil Akers who is the Force Risk and Business Continuity Head, who explains his real life experience following a routine PSA blood test, his visit to his GP and eventually finding out he had agressive cancer. His words are, "If I hadn't taken the test I would not see December 2021".
This important research commenced in January 2021. Please share this video on social media and ask anyone you know who has had prostate cancer or been tested for prostate cancer, to take part in our research. More information can be found at www.mypsatests.org.uk/research
