BOWEL SCREENING PROGRAMME

 

Did you know that Bowel Cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK, after breast lung and prostate cancers.  Around 40,700 people are diagnosed with the disease each year.  It affects both men and woman.  When bowel cancer is caught at the earliest stage, more than nine in 10 people survive for more than five years.

 

SCREENING HELPS SAVES LIVES = FACT

 

Bowel screening is used to to check for early signs of bowel cancer by looking for hidden traces of blood in your stools.  There is a national bowel screening programme for older men and women.  In England people aged 60-69 are offered screening, however this is being extended to 74.  Patients of this age will receive a screening kit that can be used at home and samples are sent away for testing.

 

If you are older than this you won't automatically receive a screening kit, but you can still take part in the screening - call freephone 0800 707 6060 or for more information visit spotcancerearly.com

PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE NURSE FOR FURTHER INFORMATION OR IF YOU HAVE A CONCERN.

We would like to advise all patients who receive a kit to not be embarrassed about taking the sample, and should you require any guidance on how you might obtain the sample to ask us.

 

PLEASE, PLEASE, ENCOURAGE PARTNERS, OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS & FRIENDS TO TAKE PART IF THEY RECEIVE A SCREENING KIT!
