Bowel cancer progress report due out today

Bowel Cancer UK is launching a progress report on the NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme today.

The charity will use the report to raise awareness among the general public of the screening programme and its benefits, as well as targeting key MPs and policy-makers with recommendations for the future.

The report will be released to national newspapers, key regional titles, broadcast media, Third Sector magazine and healthcare industry titles. It will also be sent to MPs as well as made available on its website.

The charity will argue that the age range for the screening programme in England should be extended to 50 – 74 years old, in line with the age range for Scotland and the proposed age range for Wales.
