The Scottish Bowel Screening Programme
Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland after lung and breast cancer, but it is treatable and curable, especially if diagnosed early. Whilst it's not the most pleasant thing to do it is the best way to catch it early - and they have recently changed the test so you only have to do one sample.
The Scottish Bowel Screening Programme invites all men and women between the ages of 50 to 74 for screening every 2 years. Resources and further Information about the programme can be found at – https://www.nhsinform.scot/healthy-living/screening
If you wish to request a Bowel screening kit please phone 0800 0121833
