BOWEL SCREENING FOR PATIENTS AGED 60 – 74

For those patients who receive a kit in the post from the NHS Bowel Cancer Screening we would like to encourage you to return your kit as detailed.

Bowel cancer is a very common type of cancer and is more treatable the earlier it is detected. Regular bowel screening reduces the risk of dying from bowel cancer, which is why this screening programme was set up.

Screening is for people without symptoms. If you are concerned about any symptoms of bowel cancer, please make a doctor’s appointment to discuss these.
