The Bowel Screening Programme is aimed at all patients over 50 years of age and we would encourage all of our patients to take the bowel screening test.

Bowel Cancer is the 3rd most common cancer in the UK and one of the easier cancers to treat with a high success rate if caught early enough.

If you still have the kit please use it and send it away. If you no longer have the kit you can phone 0800 0121 833 for a replacement.
