AbstractUS-based evidence suggests that lay-health worker (LHW) interventions can increase awareness around cancer risk-related lifestyles, symptom recognition, and screening programme uptake. The suitability of LHW interventions in the UK and the potential barriers and facilitators for implementation is currently unknown. This study explored the acceptability and feasibility of developing LHW interventions for cancer prevention, screening, and early diagnosis.
