Bowel Cancer Screening

In 2014 we became a bowel cancer screening centre for the new bowel scope test. Bowel cancer is a common cancer and it is known that many cancers develop from pre- existing polyps. Polyps usually do not present with symptoms. A large multicenter trial in the UK showed that a flexible sigmoidoscopy at the age of 55 reduced the risk of dying from bowel cancer.

We currently offer two lists a week and soon will be doing a third list.

This is lead by the National Bowel Cancer Screening Service.
