The week at PHE: Online highlights, week beginning 11 July

We’re pleased to bring you our round-up highlighting some of PHE’s online activity from the past week. Here’s your chance to catch up on what you might have missed including:

Be Clear On Cancer

We've launched a new Be Clear On Cancer campaign with the aim of raising awareness of the symptoms of lung cancer, other lung disease, and heart disease; all leading causes of death in England. Find out more in a new blog about the campaign.

Zika

We published a new blog on Zika this week, highlighting our advice for travellers. We've also been sharing updates from NaTHNaC's Travel Health Pro website aimed at people visiting Zika affected countries.

E. coli O157 outbreak

We're continuing to investigate a national outbreak of E. coli O157 which appears to be associated with eating mixed salad leaves. More information on E. coli can be found via NHS Choices.

Working together on sustainable development

The latest blog from our Health in a Changing Climate series looks at the importance of a joined up effort when it comes to sustainable development action.

Health Matters - your questions on bowel cancer

Our latest edition of Health Matters looks at improving the prevention and diagnosis of bowel cancer. As we do with each edition, we gathered your questions on the topic and answered them in a blog post.

Transforming services - a systems-based approach

PHE's Professor Kevin Fenton has blogged about the importance of taking a systems-based approach to healthcare. A system refers to a set of common objects or people and the relationships and interactions that make them part of a larger whole, working together towards a common purpose.
